Despite the fantastic victory, we still have points to improve as a team-Team Manager Mischa  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa after the J. League 19th Sec match against Sanfrecce Hiroshima

We had such a fantastic game. Though Sanfrecce Hiroshima lost today, I regard them as a great and formidable team. In my opinion, they are the strongest team in the J. League at the moment. Though we won our previous match against Iwata, our players’ performance then was not so great. I must say that we won the previous match thanks to our luck. After the match, we had only two days preparation before today’s match. During the two-day period, I had great discussion with my team and our players prepared themselves well for the match today. Though our team achieved a great victory, I think our team still has some challenges and points that need to be addressed. We have to work hard to rectify these points in our training.

In our play against Sanfrecce Hiroshima, we played man-to-man defense yesterday. Hiroshima's aggressive players namely Hisato Sato, Naoki Ishihara, Yojiro Takahagi, Mikic and Satoru Yamagishi are dangerous to defend just by one-on-one. For this reason, we took so much risk today.

Overall, I was able to see our players’ strong determination to win though their performance during the match. They were also aggressive in their play. I think all of these factors contributed positively to our victory.
