Team Manager Mischa – pre-match press conference the day before the match against Kashima Antlers  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa the day before the Meiji Yasuda Life Insurance 2016 J. League Championship final second leg match against Kashima Antlers

We were able to finish the Championship final first leg match with a positive result. However, our previous positive result does not guarantee our victory in the match we will play tomorrow. While there were a few good points about our performance during the first leg match, there were also several points that need to be addressed.

Over the past three days, I have prepared the team for the match while communicating well with our team members. Kashima Antlers is a fantastic team and they are a team that does well in their away matches. Playing in a match that is made up of two legs can be extremely dangerous. The team that won the first leg tend to count the first leg score into the overall match result. But, it is very dangerous to do so.

We must play our own style of soccer we have always played to win from the get go tomorrow. It is crucial that we do this in order to finish the match as a victor. We are a team of champions that scored the most winning points throughout the year. We would like to prove that we are the real winner by winning the match tomorrow.
