We must have both a strong determination and calm minds–Team Manager Mischa  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa the day before the J. League 2nd Sec match against Sagan Tosu

The week has past so quickly. Tomorrow’s match will be a very different match compared to the one we played against Gamba Osaka. Sagan Tosu is a very organized and disciplined team. They use long ball tactics a lot as part of their strategy to achieve their desired outcome. They are good at taking a second ball after they skillfully kick a long ball. They carry out second attacks from there and put pressure on their opponent team.

I expect a very fierce match will be played tomorrow. But, our players will come to the stadium with high motivations to win. However, it is important for us not to lose our presence of mind. The worst thing that could happen to us is we will be caught up in the heat of the moment with our inflated motivations. While the match we will play tomorrow is expected to be very hard, it is crucial for us to have both a strong determination and calm minds.

We have had very good training during the week. We carried out our training by envisaging what would happen during the match tomorrow. The most important thing for us to do tomorrow is to exert what we have gained during our training this week As we have prepared ourselves well for the match, all we will do tomorrow is to play a good game by giving our best to win the match.
