Borneo FC has good capital to face Liga 1 2021 with a first-class material squad, one of which is the presence of Boaz Solossa, an experienced Indonesian national team striker.
In addition, Borneo is also coached by Mario Gomez, who has also experienced coaching them since 2019 and has also handled Persib Bandung in 2017. Unfortunately, after only two matches, Mario Gomez suddenly left.
Gomez left along with his two assistant coaches. Even though Borneo’s performance was okay in two matches with one win and one defeat. Gomez pulled out ahead of the Borneo Vs Persita duel which ended 1-1, Friday (17/9/2021) yesterday.
Borneo’s management will also report Mario Gomez’s resignation to FIFA’s DRC for reasons that are not clear. In the midst of chaos regarding coaches, Borneo got a breath of fresh air with the arrival of a new sponsor.
Borneo FC president, Nabil Husein, introduced Daniel Zii or known as Mr Cuanisasi as the club’s new sponsor.
“I introduce bro Daniel Zii Mr Cuanisasi as the new Main Sponsor of the Borneo FC Samarinda team. Hopefully by joining the big family of Borneo FC, we can support the big ambition to bring Pesut Etam to become a more professional club and achieve glory both at the national and international levels,” Nabil said in a release to detikSport.
Nabil hopes that this collaboration will further accelerate Borneo FC because he believes that the club and Daniel Zii have the same mission to advance Indonesian football for the better.
The joining of this new sponsor is expected to make Borneo FC’s journey easier this season. Moreover, Borneo previously had two stakeholders, Nabil and Chandra Kurniawan, or familiarly called Charock.
“Me, Bro Nabil, and Bro Daniel Zii have the same vision and mission to bring Indonesian football to the next level, Mr. Cuanisasi will also be directly involved and support all future Borneo FC events,” said Chandra.
Meanwhile, Daniel Zee revealed the reason for choosing Borneo FC is because the club prioritizes young talents, so that later they can contribute to the Indonesian national team.
Daniel Zee was recently known to have an innovation movement during a pandemic entitled “From Vaccination to Cuanization”. In addition, he is known as an entrepreneur and investor, as well as the owner and President Director of the Zii Group Software Company.
“One of them is Borneo FC which is home to the best players. In this league 1, Borneo FC has a line of star players full of experience, and I think they have very good and bright prospects. Therefore, I decided to join Borneo FC and take part in accelerating the advancement of Indonesian football,” said Daniel.
