FC Bayern hold press conference   

After the opening training at Saitama Stadium on the 30th of July, Head Coach Jurgen Klinsmann and Willy Sagnol attended a press conference from 7:30 pm.

Head Coach Jurgen Klinsmann
“Thank you very much for your warm welcome. I am very honored to have a friendly match here in Saitama. My appreciation also goes to the fans of Urawa Reds who are our partner. We enjoyed the tournament with the children and the open training. We will also enjoy the game tomorrow.

Now we are working very hard to prepare for the start of the Bundesliga. Those who played in Euro 2008 are now back in the team and we are working on fitness. I believe that the game tomorrow will be a wonderful game. We want to have and show a good game tomorrow.

Urawa Reds is one of the best teams in Asia and achieved good result last year in the ACL. My best friend, Guido Buchwald, told me that he contributes and loves Urawa Reds. I am very looking forward to the game tomorrow. I hope that we can show a wonderful game tomorrow.”

Willy Sagnol
“Thank you very much for your warm welcome. I have come to Japan the previous time, but unfortunately my stay in Japan is always too short. I love Japan. In fact, I was very looking forward to coming here.

Urawa Reds is known as a very strong team not only in Asia but also in Europe. Although we are here for a friendly, we are professional football players. Once we start playing on the pitch, we will concentrate on winning. We will do our best to win tomorrow.”
