We must improve every element as Urawa Reds players-Team Manager Petrovic  

Comment from Team Manager Petrovic after the training match against Tochigi SC

We had a very bad match today. We now have many more things to work on. Comparing the first and second half of the match, though the players performed a little bit better during the second half, we must wonder whether it was only due to the strong wind we had today. We had many young players play in today’s match. For them to play as Urawa Reds players, they must improve every element. I think it is necessary for them to understand this. If a player is highly talented, it is possible for him to develop rapidly. However, when players are mid-level, they must perform more appropriately.
Naoki performed really well when he scored a goal today. But, in order for him to fully utilize his ability, it is necessary for him to make more attacks at the forefront.
