We are to play with a strong determination to win   

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke on the day before the J. League Yamazaki Nabisco Cup qualifying round fifth sec against Shimizu S-Pulse

It is important for us to give the right answer this time after the pitiful result we had playing our last match against Montedio Yamagata. I was able to feel a strong will from my players during our training over the past few days that they would like to prove that they were capable of a high quality performance in their next match.。We will play against a team that was also not able to achieve a good result in their previous match played on Wednesday. I suspect that Shimizu S-Pulse did not expect to lose the away match with the score of 0 to 3. We were also not able to win the match against our opponent team in the end after they scored the first goal.
I am certain that both teams are determined to play well during the next match in order to shake off the bad impressions made during their previous matches played on Wednesday. For this reason, I imagine the next match we will play will be of such high quality. As a result, I am sure it will be an interesting match for our spectators to watch. This is especially the case as both teams would like to dispel the pervious defeated performance.
