We would like to win our last home match no matter what  

Comment from Team Manager Volker Finke on the day before the 2010 season J. League Thirty Forth Sec. against Vissel Kobe

We have had so called ‘English weeks’ for the past few weeks (playing more than one match a week). But, finally we were able to have a solid week of preparation.
Since injured players are back with the team now, our practice field started to get crowded. Those players who had been away for a long time were able to join our team practice. They will not be able to play in the match tomorrow. But, they will be able to practice for the forthcoming Emperor’s Cup. We would like to win our last home match no matter what. As you may already know, Nobuhisa Yamada has been suspended. Sanou also hurt adductor muscles during the previous match. Because of the muscle strain, he will not be able to play in tomorrow’s match. They are the two players who will not be playing in the match tomorrow.
However, having said this, players who play in mid fielder positions, Hosogai and Keita are back with the team now. I believe they will be able to play in the match at any time. Sergio did not get injured this week either. For this reason, I do not think there will be a big change from last match in terms of the members who play in the match tomorrow. Our players performed really well during the first half of the match we played last time. We would like to perform as well as we did at that time tomorrow.
