Team Manager Mischa - press conference after the match against Albirex Niigata   

Comment from Team Manager Mischa after the Meiji Yasuda Life Insurance Company J. League 11th sec match against Albirex Niigata

Both teams had to play today’s match under hard conditions. As for us, many players had been suffering from fatigue as a result of playing for the ACL and the J. League concurrently which led some to sustain injuries. Those who recently came back to the team after recovering from their injuries also played the match in far less ideal conditions. Due to our current condition, a few more players got injured during the match today. As we had lost the past three matches consecutively, today’s match was such a difficult match for us to play.

Since we had no choice but to win the match today it was great in many regards that we won the match. However, I am not satisfied with our players’ performance at all. Though it was understandable that they had to play under enormous pressure because of their past few defeats, I thought they could have played the match in a calmer manner. Our team was rushing a lot from the get go and throughout the match today.
