J1 vs Kashima Antlers: Manager’s Comments

Yoon Jonghwan

We were encouraged by lots of fans. I think that the team played well but unfortunately we were defeated. So I would like to apologize the fans for such a disappointing result.

I think that my players kept up their efforts throughout the entire game, but couldn't keep their concentration till the end of the game, which resulted in the conceding. This is what really disappointed me in today’s game. Having said that, I can’t deny we were not given any chances. We just squandered the chances we were given and ended up allowing Kashima to score a goal. I’ve leant that my team can’t deal with hardship at the most important time. We will watch the today’s game to discuss things to improve. At recent games, a lack of concentration occurred near the end of the games, which caused the losses. So, we need to address this issue as well. Not so many games remain ahead. But, we will do our best to concentrate better.
