Making every effort possible to achieve a good result in the upcoming away match  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke on the day before the J. League Yamazaki Nabisco Cup qualifying round second sec against Vissel Kobe

I will introduce a rotation system for some of our players though the numbers are limited. By rotating the members this time, I would like to give a chance to those who have excellent potential but have not had the chance to prove themselves because they have not played in many matches yet.
However, Tatsuya Tanaka and Tadaaki Hirakawa will stay in Urawa as they have to prepare themselves for the upcoming weekend match. I would like them to prepare themselves well for the match on Sunday by sticking to our usual one week cycle schedule. As for Tomoya Ugajin, he will also stay in Urawa since he still remains injured. In addition to what I said, there is no such information as players who have been away from the team for a long time returning to join the team, such as Naoki Yamada and Tsukasa Umesaki.
Nonetheless, we will go to Kobe as a strong team and make every effort possible to achieve a good result in the Yamazaki Nabisco Cup.
