There are many 12th team members at our home ground-comment from Team Manager Petrovic  

Comment from Team Manager Petrovic the day before the J. League 9th Sec match against Yokohama F. Marinos

It was a pity that we were not able to carry through the good momentum we gained in our match against Nagoya Grampus since we lost our previous match against Vegalta Sendai. However, I do not want to dwell on the past as it was a thing of the past, and I would like to focus on our next match.
I believe that the match we will have against Yokohama F. Marinos will be a very difficult match. Yokohama has done well so far, not to mention, they have many top level players in the J. League. I have heard that many tickets have been sold after the match we had against Nagoya Grampus. I think we will have a wonderful match. However, we know at the same time that it will be a difficult match. I guess it will be like a derby match. But, many of our supporters will be supporting us as our 12th members. I would like my players to understand this and see them put 100 percent into the upcoming match. When we had our previous match against Sendai, I thought it was important for us not to be influenced by our surrounding situation. Many things happened when we were in Sendai such us having an earthquake when we arrived there. However, it is very important for us to take unnecessary thoughts away from our heads. We would like to put all we have into our next match without worrying about such things.
