We were unable to make the most of the four big chances we had-Team Manager Petrovic  

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

Our players performed fantastically during the match. They were very conscious about their own intention and controlled the ball well. They were making good attacks often from sides. Though Tatsuya Tanaka who was on the left side lacked calmness for the first 10 minutes into the match, he then gradually calmed himself down and performed so well from then on. However, having said this, it was such a pity that our team was not able to make the most of the four big opportunities they created. Nonetheless, I am quite pleased that our team was able to play so well against an excellent team which is currently ranks 2nd in the J. League standing. I did not think that our team gave many chances to our opponent. Reds players showed good risk management skills and the combination at the front line was also good. I thought that not so many teams in the J. League were able to play like our team did when playing against Sanfrecce Hiroshima in their home stadium. I think our team players performed almost perfectly by playing out our intended tactics strategically. All they were missing was to score goals. I would like to commend all our players as they all performed so well. I would like to especially note that Shunki Takahashi’s good performance. I think he is making remarkable progress every week. I also thought that Kato performed remarkably as well.
