Persebaya Surabaya immediately swallowed the bitter pill in the inaugural match of the BRI Liga 1 2021-2022 competition. They lost 1-3 to Borneo FC at the Wibawa Mukti Stadium, Cikarang, Saturday (4/9/21).

After the defeat, coach Aji Santoso admitted that he would conduct an evaluation of his team to prepare for the nearest match. He certainly doesn’t want Persebaya to lose again.

“It’s important for us to do a thorough evaluation after losing the first match,” said Aji Santoso at a post-match press conference.

The coach from Kepanjen, Malang, explained that his team’s defeat was caused by several factors. Most of the Persebaya players still need to adapt again, especially since the competition has been off for almost two years.

In addition, Persebaya Surabaya has not been able to field four foreign players, so it becomes a separate obstacle. However, Aji did not insist on self-defense after being made by Borneo FC.

Aji Santoso even ignited the spirit of his players to perform better. Persebaya is expected to always be ready, be it local or foreign, if appointed to fill the starting eleven composition.

“We did not complain from the start and the reason for losing was not because there were no foreign players,” explained the former coach of Arema FC and Persela Lamongan.

In the future, Persebaya Surabaya will continue its work in the BRI Liga 1 2021-2022 by challenging Tira-Persikabo on Saturday (11/9/21). The venue is still kept secret to prevent the mobilization of supporters, especially Bonek.
