Detiktoday.com – Persib competitor in League 1 2020, Arema, was left behind by their captain, Mario Gomez. The coach’s steps were followed by the striker who came from Argentina, Jonatan Bauman. The situation is certainly a wedge for Singo Edan who is prepared to stare at the rolling competition again next October.
The captain of the Persib team, Supardi, spoke up about Arema’s condition. Moreover, Gomez and Bauman have also been with him to defend the banner of Maung Bandung in the 2018 season. He said he did not understand what was going on in the Arema team, but this condition would not make Arema weak.
According to him, Arema will remain a strong rival despite being left by a coach who is known to have cold hands. Because Supardi assessed that the majority of Arema’s key players remained. Therefore, the level of play is still the same even though Arema will be taken care of by a new coach.
“It’s an internal problem, I don’t understand what their problem is whether it is related to PSSI’s decision or related to the coach’s salary, I don’t know,” said Supardi to the media crew when interviewed at Mes Persib, Thursday (6/8).
“Arema is still a strong team regardless of the coach because the players don’t change much. Because the players are still, maybe if the players are 50 percent out maybe it could influence the team. That’s my view, “said the Persib senior right-back.
Arema is seen by Supardi as not making many changes in the transfer market. According to him, this can be a reference that the collectivity of the players will be maintained because the Arema players have been playing together for a long time. Coupled with the club’s big name, he believes Arema is not difficult to find a new quality coach.
“Because they have been united for a long time, between players but they still have to have a good captain. But I don’t think it really matters. The effect might be yes, but I’m sure the class of Arema will not be difficult to find a coach, there must be many big teams that want to, “said Supardi.
