Team Manager Hori and Player Endo attend an official interview session the day before the match against Kawasaki Frontale  

An official AFC Champions League (ACL) 2017 pre-match interview session was held at Saitama Stadium on the 12th of September ahead of the following day’s Quarter Final 2nd Leg match against Kawasaki Frontale. Urawa Reds Team Manager Takafumi Hori and Player Wataru Endo attended the interview session to express their excitement and determination for the upcoming match.

Comment from Team Manager Hori
Given the result of the previous away match, tomorrow’s game won’t be an easy one for us to play. Having said that, I believe our players have what it takes to overcome the existing challenge. Our players also have high motivation. It is hard to predict what will happen on the pitch and we came thus far in fact by overcoming the difficult challenges we faced when we played against Jeju United FC. We will remain 100 percent focused and work hard together with a strong mentality to overcome the hard challenge tomorrow in order to move to the next stage.

Comment from Wataru Endo
As we had a mortifying result of one to three for the previous away match, we want to secure two points from the upcoming home match by winning. For this reason, we will play the offensive soccer style the team has always aimed to play tomorrow in order to bring out our full potential. Under Team Manager Hori, the team has organized our strategies with many different players playing in matches while remaining competitive. As this is the case, we trust that we can show a different type of match from our previous one. We would definitely like to show a good performance and score two points so that we can get to the next stage.
