J1 vs Shimizu S-Pulse: Manager’s Comments

Yoon Jonghwan

“It was a long way to victory. We had many supporters from right at the entrance of the stadium, and they made a great atmosphere for us. Though we were caught up once in the 1st half, we gained our strength back by the loud cheering from the many people. And that led us to the today’s victory. We remembered the away match that we lost against Shimizu a month ago, and got ready for the fight back to ‘definite win’ today. We faced the team who play with 4 backs today, a little struggled with lack of quick move in the 1st half, but moved better in the 2nd half with good linking. Then we scored from our forte for the set-piece. Then we carried on with good defence while we were ahead of them, and kept attacking. All our players expressed their eagerness ‘to win’ and the challenging attitude on the pitch. It’s important for us to not waste this victory, and link it to the next match. I hope all the lads keep that spirit and go for the coming matches. The series of the games will still continue, so we’ll continue our hard working to prepare well, and face the next game.”
