Nagoya Grampus coach Dragan Stojkovic has named work ethic as the key factor in his side’s convincing 4-1 win over Ulsan Hyundai last night.
Stojkovic congratulated his team on their brilliant performance which saw them qualify for the round of 16 in the Asian Champions League.
“I’d like to congratulate my players for their excellent game today, the victory and the qualification,” said Stojkovic.
“With this victory, we secured first place in our group, and this is the most important thing.
“It was not easy to play Ulsan because they showed us that they can be very strong in the air, and it was very difficult to mark and stop Kim Shin-wook in particular. But I think defensively we played very well.
“I saw beautiful goals and also beautiful assists. I’m asking my players to be determined at all times in the area.
“I’m really satisfied how they used this kind of play today.”
