■Jun Ando's comments:
"As this was my first transfer, I felt rather uneasy. However, I feel good about the move as Matsumoto has given me a warm welcome. I am proud to have played for as big a club as Cerezo: I am taking away with me a treasure trove of experience. Though it is a shame that I wasn't able to play satisfactorily nor able to contribute to the side, I feel that it is test my skills elsewhere. That was what motivated me to transfer. I hope to be able to continue to play my own way and to the best of my abilities.
I will be praying for Cerezo's success behind the scenes. This team can definitely achieve what they have set their minds to. Thank you for the passionate cheering and support you have given me over the past year and a half. I appreciate everything that has been done for me throughout my time with the side."
