The club from the capital city of South Sulawesi Province, PSM Makassar, can play Yakob Sayuri against Madura United in the second week of BRI Liga 1 2021/22.
As is known, the player with the national team label missed the opening week against Arema FC due to a recurrence of his right knee injury a few hours before kick off.
The 23-year-old footballer is gradually recovering so he has the opportunity to make his debut in the BRI Liga 1 2021/22 against Madura United this weekend.
However, PSM Makassar coach, Milomir Seslija, admitted that he would not play Yakob Sayuri for the full 90 minutes despite having an important role in the scheme.
“Now, he continues to improve and has a great opportunity to play even if it’s only for about 15 to 20 minutes,” said Seslija at a press conference, Saturday (11/09/21).
Of course, Yakob Sayuri’s condition forced Milomir Seslija to rack his brains to find the right player to fill the PSM Makassar right wing striker post against Madura United.
Furthermore, Milomir Seslija admitted that there were two problems that prevented Yakob Sayuri from performing fully when PSM Makassar clashed with Madura United.
“He got a strange injury because his sleeping position was not good and plus he only trained once so far,” said the UEFA Pro licensed football coach.
The PSM Makassar duel against Madura United in the second week of the BRI Liga 1 2021/22 will be held at the Madya Senayan Stadium, Jakarta, Sunday (12/09/21) starting at 18.15 WIB.
