J1 vs Kawasaki Frontale: Player’s Comments

Kenyu Sugimoto

Q: What do you think was a reason, or were reasons for today’s defeat by big score difference?
“It was a very tough game. I wanted to win but we were inferior all over. We must accept the defeat, and move onto the next match positively.”

Q: It seems the team is struggling with defence in recent matches?
“I don’t think it’s only defence, but also the ways we lost ball were bad. We had chances to score too, so it wasn’t only the backs’ fault. The front and the back should link each other and work together, so we must all work together and make the change. How will we get over this situation of no win? Having one victory will change it all, I think. I won’t be able to play for the semi-finals of Levain Cup, but if we’ll be able to reach to the finals, it will probably bring victories to the league matches too. In the meantime I will work hard too for what I do.”
