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

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke on the day before the 2009 season J. League Twenty Fourth Sec. against Vissel Kobe
After the match against Sanfrecce Hiroshima, we knew that we had to play our next match with different members. Currently, Tulio and Ponte are suspended. It was another story whether they would have been able to play in the next match due to their injuries. When the yellow cards were given to them, they were suspended for the next match. Since they will not be able to play in our next match, we must play the match with other players. I think Sergio’s performance is improving a lot. Tsukasa Umesaki’s performance during match style practice is also improving day by day. As this is the case, I believe that we have several options for our offensive. Our two new players will also accompany the team although they will not be starting lineup members. It is necessary for them to accumulate various experiences from now. I will take them to our next match with the team so that they can learn what they will have to go through during away matches.
