EJ – On Thursday (7/3), Persebaya Surabaya will face their classic rival since “Perserikatan Era”, Persib Bandung, on match day 2 Grup A of President Cup 2019 at Si Jalak Harupat Stadium, Bandung.
Djadjang Nurdjaman, head coach of Persebaya, will return to the bench after missing the first game due to the AFC Pro course. However, Djanur, his nickname, will face difficult choices related to their goalkeeper. As we know, the Surabaya giant has three goalkeepers this season who have almost similiar technical ability. They are Miswar Saputra and two new promising signing players, Abdul Rohim (former PSMS’s player) and Imam Arief Fadillah (former Persib’s third goal keeper). As his first goalie ,Miswar Saputra, has shown under-performed in the last match and Djanur seems to be in complicated situation.
Many voices expect that it is time for Miswar Saputra to be placed on the bench. Whereas Abdul Rohim or Imam Arief will be given an opportunity to seal a starter position in next two days match. Assistant coach, Bejo Sugiantoro, said after a thrilling match against Perseru Serui: “If you make a mistake, Miswar has indeed been made one (on first goal). It will go back to Coach Djanur’s final decision.”
Who will be set for starter goalkeeper? Let’s wait together. May Djanur’s best strategy and players lineup can win and seal the game! (dpp)
