We will fight through with our supporters with a strong determination to win the title as long as there is such an opportunity – Team Manager Mischa  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa the day before the J.League 34th Sec match against Nagoya Grampus

The current situation we are facing is not an easy one for us. This is the result of difficult developments over the last few weeks. During the match against Gamba Osaka, our players performed very well and fought against the opponent team at full power with the aim to win the league title. However, our team very unfortunately lost a goal after 88 minutes into the match. Our players lost the match painfully despite their great performance, however, they rebooted their minds and prepared themselves very well for the match against Sagan Tosu. They played well against the difficult opponent, Sagan Tosu by counteracting their strength in order to execute what they meant to achieve. Though this was the case, we finished the match with a shocking and hard-to-believe result by drawing the match after losing a goal from a set play at 94 minutes into the match. For these reasons, we had to concede the top position to another team even though we had been the top team for most of the time over the course of this season. People often compare our current situation to our situation last year. However, I think the team is a totally different team now compared to what they were a year ago at the end of last season. Though our team was not able to achieve positive results over the last two previous matches, our players performed and played very well.

Our final match against Nagoya Grampus awaits us tomorrow after such difficult matches. At the beginning of the week, I spoke with the team to put the past behind us in order to execute what we can achieve. Even though we had two bitter matches, I encouraged the team to be positive to prepare ourselves well and the team had fantastic training together this week as a result. We will fight through the final match in our home Saitama Stadium with our supporters and we will have a strong determination to win the title as long as there is such an opportunity.
