J1 vs Kashiwa Reysol: Player’s Comments

Yoichiro Kakitani

“The result is everything, so every single games, and every single winning point is very important for us. But we should be confidence about we have chances in every games we play. The goal like today happens when we are playing several games, and even if that didn’t happen we must have scored to win. We have the next game very soon again, so I’ll work hard.”

Q: You must of known that Kashiwa would put the pressure right from the front. And in the 1st half you were dodging well and had chances to step in, but could not reach to scoring the opening goal… Do you think this was the reason of the defeat?
“Yes, that was it. I wish we scored at those early chances. I feel like that was the game that you lose. They gained the margin (by earned a goal first), and that made the game’s fate, I am feeling so now by thinking back. At that situation, we should of rose the defence line up and stepped forward, but instead we stepped backwards and made spaces in the middle part. I want to study it by watching video, and make improvement for the next games.”
