We will play in the match with high concentration and strong determination  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke on the day before the 2010 season J. League Thirty Second Sec. against Yokohama F-Marinos
We only had two days between the two official matches this time, which is very short period of time. Since this was the case, what we did first was to spend our time on players’ recovery. Then, I checked the situation of injured players. Now, I have to determine which players can play in the next match.
Our players have been able to create many scoring opportunities in every match they play. Since our situation is difficult at the moment, I would like to use any players who raise his hands and say that he would make the most of the scoring opportunities created to score goals.
After my detailed analysis of the match our players played against Gamba Osaka, I realized that it is very difficult to criticize one particular group of players. What is most important for us during the next match is to remain highly concentrated as usual and have a strong determination to make the every opportunity we will create to score goals. It is also important for us to play our style of soccer for solid 90 minutes without losing focus.
In regards to the members to play in the match, we will have to make a few adjustments since we will be playing three matches in one week. Nothing has been decided so far. However, one option is to have Ugajin as a starting line up member. I may also introduce another player as a starting line up member in a mid fielder position as we are playing in a series of matches this time. Some players such as Hosogai are now back with the team again. During the previous match, Ponte played for the entire 90 minutes. Considering the fact that he was away for a long time, playing solid 90 minutes must have put so much burden on him. If we were to use him again during the match against Kawasaki, it may be better for him to join the team mid way though the match. I am still considering many points and have not made the final decision yet. For this reason, I would like to decide the final members after today’s training. I would also like to decide the starting line up members after assessing my players’ conditions today.
