Team Manager Mischa - press conference the day before the match against Kawasaki Frontale  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa the day before the Meiji Yasuda Life Insurance Company J. League 2nd Stage 16th Sec match against Kawasaki Frontale

I regard tomorrow’s opponent, Kawasaki Frontale a fantastic and formidable team. I expect the match the two teams play tomorrow will be a great and interesting one. As the end of the season approaches, I can see that we will continue to play very tense matches just like the previous one our team had against FC Tokyo.

What makes our matches difficult in this challenging end of the season is the match schedule we have. Having a break like the one we have just had at this late stage in the season makes it hard for us to keep a sense of tension. When we have a match on a weekly basis, it is easier for us to maintain our rhythm. However, having a week’s break makes it hard for us to keep a feeling of tension. It makes it almost as hard as playing two matches one after another after only two or three day’s break during hot summer.

Talking about more technical matters, how we maintain our players’ good condition towards the end of the season is a big challenge for us. It is difficult to determine how much stress we can put on our players during training and how much break time we should allow them to have. It is very challenging for us to prepare well for an upcoming match while keeping our players’ condition best. However, having said this, I trust that our team members have prepared themselves well for tomorrow’s match over the last two weeks while keeping good communications.

Tomorrow’s match will be played by two major aggressive J. League teams. The only difference the two teams have would be the fact that our team is still in with a chance to win the title while our opponent isn’t. All we will do tomorrow is to do our utmost in order to seize a victory with the aim to win the title.
