Players on the pitch are to perform well in order to gain three points by winning the game  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke on the day before the 2010 season J. League Twenty Ninth Sec. against Sanfrecce Hiroshima

It is extremely regrettable that Sergio and Umesaki left team training this week. Ponte has been away for a long time and Spiranovic, Naoki and Tatsuya are not able to join the team either. For this reason, we face a very difficult situation again.
On top of this, Ugajin is now suspended and many players were away. I can not deny that the situation surrounding the team now and for next week is not good. However, having said that, our team has done well and shown high quality performances in many official matches over the past few months even when we had many injured players. I feel that our players have prepared themselves for the weekend match this week. Of course, it is a pity that we have many injured players. Nonetheless, I believe that our players who will be on the pitch will perform well to gain three points by winning the match.
