We were extremely disappointed by the result as we had prepared ourselves well-Team Manager Petrovic   

Comment from Team Manager Petrovic after the J. League 25th Sec match against Montedio Yamagata

We were not able to win the match today. Considering that we might have been able to get away from our current situation by winning the match at this time, it was such a disappointment for us not to mention the club and our supporters that we were not able to win against Montedio Yamagata. I think our performance was bad.
During the first half of the match especially, our opponent attempted to score a goal only once. However, they managed to score a goal with that very attempt. As for us, we struggled to attack our opponent as we were not able to direct the ball to our front line. As a result, we were not able to have any scoring opportunities. We were not able to achieve good results even when we had the ball in our possession. During the second half of the match, we tried everything we could such as placing two attackers and introducing different players etc. so that we can have the ball at our front line. However, this unfortunately did not lead to any goals or scoring opportunities.
I think it is necessary for us to understand why our supporters are extremely upset or dissatisfied with us. When we lost a goal, this happened even when we were cautious. It was extremely regrettable as our mid fielders prepared themselves well in order to follow long balls. Since we still have nine matches ahead of us, there is no point for us to become panicked or fall apart. I think it is important for us to be united and carry ourselves through by believing in ourselves for the next forthcoming match.
