In the second week of Liga 1 2021-2022, Madura United is scheduled to meet PSM Makassar.
The match between Madura United vs PSM Makassar took place at the Madya Stadium, Senayan, Central Jakarta, Sunday (12/9/2021).
Madura United coach, Rahmad Darmawan, did not deny that Wiljan Pluim would pose a danger to the defense of Fachrudin Aryanto et al. if allowed.
Therefore, Madura United will be wary of the movement of Wiljan Pluim.
“What is certain is that Wiljan Pluim will be one of the players we will focus on,” said Rahmad Darmawan.
“We (Madura United) will indeed be wary of it,” continued the 54-year-old coach in a press conference session, Saturday (11/9/2021).
Rahmad Darmawan added, apart from Wiljan Pluim, Madura United’s roaming range of other PSM Makassar players should also be observed.
PSM Makassar’s style of play when competing in the first week of League 1 has also been understood by Rahmad Darmawan.
In the match against Arema FC, PSM Makassar, which only played with 10 people, was able to draw 1-1.
“Pluim is not the only person to watch out for because PSM plays very collectively,” said the former Persija Jakarta coach.
“There are many players that we have to watch out for,” said Rahmad Darmawan.
It is said Rahmad Darmawan, his foster children have been given instructions to face the match against PSM Makassar.
Madura United is determined to achieve positive results in the match.
Previously, Madura United had to settle for sharing points with Tira Persikabo in the first week of League 1.
Madura United only won a 1-1 draw when they met Tira Persikabo.
“Overall, my task is to give how players must remain vigilant against several opponents,” said the man who is familiarly called RD.
“Overall, we have prepared the players,” concluded the figure who once coached Tira Persikabo.
