But in their first game in the post-Postecoglou era, Yokohama slumped to a 3-1 J League Cup defeat at home to Consadole Sapporo.

And caretaker manager, Hideki Matsunaga, believes the players' performances have suffered after Postecoglou opted to leave for Glasgow.

He said: "The staff and players have had a very tough time mentally for the past two weeks.

"The resignation of the manager has made it difficult to adjust.
