The day before the J. League Twenty Eighth Sec.-Team Manager Finke   

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke on the day before the 2009 season J. League Twenty Eighth Sec. against JEF United Ichihara Chiba
We finished our previous match with an unfortunate result. However, we have made efforts since then to approach our issues in the right way. During training, we discussed many points that needed to be addressed. I think my players have worked on their mental conditioning through their daily training sessions.
During our previous match, our team was playing well for a while after we caught up to our opponent. As such, I would like my players to continue to play as they did at that time.
As for the condition of our players, it is not too bad. Tatsuya Tanaka’s condition is gradually improving. Naoki Yamada is also getting better though he is still not 100 percent. Certainly, it is unfortunate that Nobuhisa Yamada cannot play in two matches in a row. However, most of the members are now back with the team again.
