We will play our own style of soccer from the start-Team Manager Mischa  

Comment from Team Manager Mischa the day before the J. League 8th Sec against Nagoya Grampus

This week I talked to our players about the loss we had in our previous match against Omiya Ardija before discussing with them our next match against Nagoya Grampus. As I knew it was also a real pity for our players that we lost the derby match, I thought it would be best for us to talk about the match against Omiya Ardija in order for us to switch our mind for the next match. When you win, you will feel really good as people praise you. However, what is important is how well you can take your loss and how you react. I was paying close attention to our players to find out how Urawa Reds players react to a loss. In this sense, it was necessary for us to think about how we would react to a loss. I urged our players to think about it. We also reflected upon our performance during the match. We lost two goals even though we created several scoring opportunities. I guess our players failed to perform well against their opponent. I told my team that they need to make adjustments in their next match. During the second half of the match, it was obvious to anyone that we were fiercely attacking Omiya. Our players played well during the second half of the previous match. They were the type of the things I told my team after reflecting upon our last match against Omiya Ardija.

Nagoya Grampus has been ranked up higher in the ranking over the last few years. They can play a very compact game and make dangerous attacks. I assume the next match will not be an easy game either. For this reason, we must switch our minds from the last match we lost in order to be positive for the next match. It is important for us to play our own style of soccer from the start since we had a bad start last time.
Although we respect Nagoya Grampus, there is no need for us to fear them. It is important for us to be confident about ourselves. We will do our best with confidence.
