Bobotoh reacted strongly to Persib Bandung’s disappointing performance in the first series of Liga 1 2021-2022.
In six matches in Liga 1 2021, the club nicknamed Maung Bandung was only able to win two victories, namely against Barito Putera (1-0) and Persita Tangerang (2-1).
The last four matches of Persib ended in a draw.
Persib got a draw against Bali United (2-2), Borneo FC (0-0), Persikabo 1973 (0-0), and PSM Makassar (1-1).
Bobotoh’s wave of disappointment with Persib’s performance has actually been seen since Maung Bandung was held to a draw by Borneo FC.
A more massive action then occurred after Maung Bandung drew with PSM Makassar in the sixth week of Liga 1 2021-2022, Saturday (2/10/2021) night WIB.
A number of Bobotoh alliances invaded Graha Persib on Jl Sulanjana, Bandung City, after the Persib vs PSM match.
During the action, a banner with the words “Ngerakeun (embarrassing) Rene Out” was displayed in front of the Persib team’s management office.
Yudi Baduy, the administrator of Viking Persib Club (VPC) said the action was taken as a form of Bobotoh’s disappointment with Persib’s performance in his last four matches in this season’s competition.
According to him, Maung Bandung does not seem to show an attitude as a big team that is hungry for a championship title.
In fact, the Persib squad this season is quite luxurious because it is inhabited by many quality players in every position.
“We as supporters feel that this Persib squad is luxurious, but why is it so difficult to win,” he said.
“From a technical point of view, I don’t want to talk about it, but from the four draws this is an important point,” Yudi told reporters, Saturday (2/10/2021) night WIB.
“There must be an evaluation carried out, this luxury squad should be able to get more results than this. We came here to keep Persib on track,” he continued.
A number of demands were voiced by Bobotoh in the action.
In addition to demanding an evaluation of the team’s performance, Bobotoh also asked the management to meet with representatives of Persib supporters.
Yudi said Bobotoh would continue to monitor Persib’s development in the second series of Liga 1 2021.
If Maung Bandung’s performance does not improve in the second series of Liga 1 2021, Bobotoh will demand that the head coach of Persib, Robert Rene Alberts, leave his position.
“The first step is the evaluation, the second we want to meet the management directly, we hope that the management invites all elements of Bobotoh,” said Yudi.
“We will give you two days to respond.”
“We will also see and monitor if it is not carried out, our demands are Rene out, we have agreed,” he said.
On this condition, Yudi said, Bobotoh urged the seriousness of PT Persib Bandung Dignity (PBB) as Persib management to take responsibility.
Because Bobotoh doesn’t want Persib to get worse.
“On the basis of love, we don’t want the second “golden era” to repeat itself and in order to keep Persib on the winning track, our expectations are high, so Persib don’t relax,” said the Viking Persib Club administrator.
