We are to play in the match with a positive attitude by having courage and confidence  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke on the day before the 2010 season J. League Thirtieth Sec. against Kyoto Sanga F.C.

First of all, what is most important for our players at this time is to remain fully concentrated for the upcoming match. As for the current situation of the team, it is quite likely that Nobuhisa Yamada will play as a member of the team tomorrow. However, it is very regrettable that Hosogai will not be able to play in the match as he is away from the team due to his injury. But, having said that we have always found a way to respond in this situation over the last few weeks when some players were injured. We had players who were capable of playing in official matches on the pitch and the team has made some positive results. When the team played the away match against Jubilo Iwata, we were not at all inferior to them. For this reason, we would like to have courage and confidence about our play style. We would like to be always forward facing and remain positive to take on the challenge of the next match we play. We certainly would like to improve our decisiveness this time.
