Team Manager Hori – press conference after the match against Gamba Osaka  

Comment from Team Manager Hori after the J. League YBC Levain Cup Group Stage 2nd Sec match against Gamba Osaka
We had a terrible start to the match and the game progressed under Gamba Osaka’s control. We struggled in waging attacks. We were also off rhythm in our defense and could not have a compact defense. As a result, we lost two goals during the first half of the match.

During half time, we changed one of the members and we started the second half with an aim to rebuild the match with a compact defense. However, we lost another goal from a corner kick. We tried to score goals by taking risks after that. However, this created a vicious circle as we kept receiving counter attacks.

But, our players did their best until the last moment of the match. I take responsibility for today’s defeat.

As the Levain Cup will still continue, it is possible for us to move further ahead. We will switch our minds to prepare ourselves well for the next J. League match first so that we can seize our first victory for the home match.
