The coach of Tira Persikabo, Igor Kriushenko, appreciated the struggle of his team who played a draw against Madura United in the inaugural match of Liga 1 2021-2022.

In the duel which was held at the Indomilk Arena Stadium, Tangerang, Friday (3/9/2021), Tira Persikabo successfully ended the match with a score of 1-1.

Previously, they had fallen behind from Madura United when Hugo Gomes dos Santos scored in the 39th minute.

However, the team nicknamed Laskar Padjadjaran finally managed to catch up to a goal deficit through Ahmad Nufiandani in the 65th minute.

Igor was quite happy with the struggle that his team displayed throughout the match.

“I am quite happy with the results achieved by my team,” said Igor Kriushenko when opening the post-match press conference session, Friday (3/9/2021).

“I want to thank those who fought from the start to the last minute,” he continued.

The 57-year-old coach said, Manahati Lestusen and his friends did not fall in the slightest even though they had fallen behind by one goal.

They were actually able to play thumping to chase the equaliser goal. Luckily, the efforts that were deployed paid off sweetly in the 65th minute.

“They have put all their strength into it. After conceding the first goal earlier, they immediately bounced back,” he said.

“They didn’t lower their heads at all and just started fighting again,” the Belarus coach continued.

According to Igor, Tira Persikabo has the opportunity to get ahead if a number of opportunities are created that can be used properly.

However, unfortunately there is only one opportunity that can be converted into a goal. Now, Igor is waiting for an additional foreign striker for his team.

He hopes that these foreign players can be the answer to the deadlock of the Laskar Padjadjaran attack sector at the beginning of Liga 1 2021-2022.

“Unfortunately, we only scored one goal. Though there are many moments to score goals. To be sure, my team is still waiting for foreign strikers who have not arrived,” he said.
