The material for PSM Makassar players is considered no better than Arema FC, but Milomir Seslija doesn’t think that’s an extraordinary thing for them.
PSM Makassar will face Arema FC in the first week of the 2021-2022 Liga 1 match, with only two foreign players.
In the match that will be presented at Pakansari Stadium, Bogor Regency on Sunday (5/9/2021), Arema FC can be strengthened by their four foreign players.
Meanwhile, PSM Makassar only has two foreign players, namely Wiljan Pluim and Anco Jansen.
Meanwhile, Arema FC’s four foreign player slots have been filled by goalkeepers Adilson Maringa, Sergio Silva, Renshi Yamaguchi, and Carlos Fortes.
Despite being outnumbered by foreign players, PSM’s coach, Milomir Seslija, was not afraid and kept his target for three points in the match.
“It doesn’t matter, we are a team. We do not differentiate between local and foreign players,” said Milomir Seslija in a virtual press conference session on Saturday (4/9/2021).
With the current squad, PSM Makassar has anticipated the advantages of Arema FC.
“However, we have anticipated this difficulty (Arema FC, which is strengthened by four foreign players),” said Milomir Seslija.
“We brought 29 players and all of us can expect to play,” said the former Arema FC coach.
PSM Makassar had a positive record when they met the team called Singo Edan.
In the last meeting with Arema FC in the second round of League 1 2019, PSM Makassar won with a landslide score of 6-2.
