J1 vs Yokohama F. Marinos: Manager’s Comments

Yoon Jonghwan

“It was the 1st match for us since our victory of the Levain Cup title, and we received so much strength again from so many people. Though we didn’t start very well, we turned the things around in 2nd half and showed many good plays. The players never gave up until the end, kept their calm, and that led us to this result. I believe that the victory of the Cup tournament gave extra strength to the players. They took advantage of the experience from the cup matches for today’s game. Their attitude of shaping back when they fell behind was fantastic, they’ve done something that we didn’t have before, it was a great game when I think back. We have 2 more games in the league, and I feel we’ve made a foundation by ourselves today to be able to reach within top 3. With 2 more remaining games, I would like to secure the entry to ACL (Asia Champions League). The players expressed that feeling in today’s match too, so I really believe that we can do it. I am so happy to receive so much strength from so many people, and would like to return the gratitude to them.”
