We are Urawa Reds and we will be responsible for our own performance-Team Manager Petrovic  

Comment from Team Manager Petrovic the day before the J. League 15th Sec match against Sanfrecce Hiroshima

Our next match will be a very difficult away match for us. If my memory serves me right, Sanfrecce Hiroshima is a very strong team which has played under the same team manager for 6 years with the same system and play style. I think the team has very capable players who can bring victory to the team no matter what team they play against.
I also have the impression that the team plays their home matches well. For instance, Sanfrecce can play very well against a strong team such as Gamba Osaka without being daunted. I think we will be required to remain concentrated to play a wise game. In order to show our players are of high-quality and prove that we are Urawa Reds, it is important for each of us to be responsible for our own performance.
Since Sanfrecce Hiroshima is very good at counter attacks, we must prepare ourselves well so that we do not struggle with their counter attacks. We have to make sure that one of the side back players will stay in the middle of the ground when the other one moves forward. In addition to this, we must also make sure that two center back players and two mid fielders will also remain in the middle of the ground to avoid their counter attacks. It is necessary to bare this in mind when fighting against them.
