A number of FK Senica players who had broken down returned to compete in the Slovak FA Cup, including Egy Maulana Vikri and Witan Sulaeman.
Egy Maulana Vikri and Witan Sulaeman want to return to compete for FK Senica even though the salary issue has not yet been resolved.
The two Indonesian national team players previously took part in a strike by eight FK Senica players in the Slovak League.
The strike which was led by captain Juraj Piroska was due to the arrears of the management of FK Senica which had not been paid.
Even so, a number of players decided to end the strike early in the semifinal match of the Slovak FA Cup, Wednesday (21/4/2022) night.
Last night, FK Senica hosted Spartak Trnava 0-3 on aggregate.
In the offensive line, there are no main players who want to appear except for Egy Maulana Vikri and Witan Sulaeman.
The Egy-Witan duo flanked young striker Jakub Buchel who was forced to appear due to the absence of Milan Jurdik and Giannis Niarchos.
The basic spirit of the players was slack, Spartak Trnava immediately broke into the host’s goal when the match was running for 31 seconds through Bamidele Isa Yusuf’s nick.
The goal was immediately followed by Ammar Ramadan, Alex Ivan and Stanislav Olejnik’s strikes to make the score 0-4.
Thus, FK Senica had to be eliminated from the semifinals of the Slovak FA Cup by losing 0-7 on aggregate to Spartak Trnava.
After the match, the interim coach of FK Senica, Jiri Pecha, who replaced Pavel Sustr, could not say much about the performance of his team.
Jiri Pecha considers some of the players returning from strike action to be very helpful to young players who are forced to appear.
“We played like we had to, I’m satisfied with what (the players) showed,” said Pecha (20/4/2022).
“Several players came, even though this week was not optimal (because of the strike), I’m glad they wanted to help us,” he said.
It is not yet known whether FK Senica will get full strength when they travel to Michalovce, Saturday (23/4/2022).
Bad news for FK Senica, Egy and Witan will certainly leave Slovakia to appear at the 2021 SEA Games.
Egy and Witan were included in Shin Tae-yong’s list of choices for the U-23 Indonesian national team to navigate the 2021 SEA Games in Vietnam.
The FK Senica season will only end at the end of May, but Egy and Witan have to fly to Vietnam in early May.
