Comment from Team Manager Petrovic after finishing the J. League first sec match against Vissel Kobe

I thought that our team controlled the match during the first half of the match, especially the first 20 minutes of the match today. The team had created several great scoring opportunities during the first half. It was such a pity that the team was not able to make the most of the opportunities to score goals at that time.
It was also unfortunate that the player who had a yellow card received another one during the second half of the match. However, having said that, I value the fact that our team had put all their efforts to perform their best even after the player had to leave the pitch.
But, I can not believe that our team had lost the match today. I am very happy with the over all performance of our players as I recognized several good points such as good combination plays. However, it is still necessary for our team to improve minor details. I think the team especially needs to stop making small passes and they need to work on minimizing little mistakes.
