J1 vs Kashiwa Reysol: Manager’s Comments

Yoon Jonghwan

“As I spoke at the ceremony after the game, I have nothing to talk about here. However, I would like to thank our supporters who have encouraged us for two years. For the last game, we would like to fight at our best as today was disappointing. I suppose that my players are also frustrated by the result. I would like them to prepare well for the next game which is held next week.”

Q: At the ceremony after the game, a banner expressing supporters’ appreciation was raised alongside the chants. How did you feel about that?
“ It reminds me of the time when I was a player. I often received encouragement from my fans. So, I appreciate that they called my name again. Whenever I saw supporters who were cheering me, I always thought that we have to win. I am frustrated that we could not do it. That said, I am glad to see and hear their cheers. Although I am the first alumnus manager, I think that I have done a good job (ahaha…)”

Q2: How was the two years for you?
“ It was good because I got the first title as a manager, which gave me confidence that I can manage any team as long as I focus on it. Whether players play well or poorly, if the team can do their best, they will develop. That is what I feel.”
