□Sei Muroya Comment
"I'm so happy to be selected as one of the Best Eleven.
I think the people around me put me to good use, and it was really a first for me where I could flourish.
So my result is own for my teammate. Thank you."
□Masato Morishige Comment
Since the previous win (2016 season), there were seasons where I couldn't play as I expected due to my injury, but I'm happy to have been selected as Best Eleven.
I think that personal award is solely due to the team's results, so I'm thankful to all my team mates, fans, and supporters.
□Diego Oliveira Comment
I'm really glad to be selected as one of the Best Eleven.
I think it's all thanks to God, my family, and all the fans and supports that I was able to receive this award.
I was able to individually get this award, but next year, I want us to take the title. Again, I'd like to express my thanks to everyone in the team, and all the fans and supporters.
□Kensuke Nagai Comment
"It is such an honor to be selected as Best Eleven. I think it's precisely because of my teammates' support that I'm able to win this award, so I am extremely grateful to them.
I want to work hard to leave behind even better results next year."
□Kento Hashimoto Comment
"I am so happy to have been able to win an award with such prestige.
I am grateful to my team mates, our coach, the staff, and everyone involved in F.C.Tokyo.
Without being satisfied with just this, we will aim even higher and work harder.
Please continue supporting us from here on."

"This is the first time that I’ve received this kind of award, so I am very happy.
It would have been ideal to be the champions and be selected in the Best Eleven, but I'm still proud.
