Persija Jakarta coach, Thomas Doll, confirmed that the two new foreign players from the Kemayoran Tigers would soon arrive.
The quota for Persija Jakarta’s foreign players is still incomplete.
The Capital Troops have only brought in two Czech foreign players, namely Michael Krmencik and Odgej Kudela.
Kudela played as a center back and Krmencik was brought in to spearhead Persija Jakarta.
The arrival of the two foreign players was highly appreciated by The Jakmania.
Because, Krmencik and Kudela are still actively defending the Czech national team.
The remaining two foreign players who have not been brought in by Persija Jakarta are from Asia and Non-Asian.
Thomas Doll did not want to divulge the name of the Persija Jakarta foreign player and it was better to wait.
“Two of our foreign players from the Czech Republic can help this team and for the Asian foreign players and another one is coming soon,” said Thomas Doll.
The German coach was very pleased with the efforts of Persija Jakarta’s management who dared to bring in foreign players as he wished.
According to Thomas Doll, Persija Jakarta’s management movement can be said to be very fast.
“Management has done a great job of bringing in very good players, I’m very happy,” said Thomas Doll.
Thomas Doll is arguably the coach who went against the grain in the 2022 President’s Cup pre-season tournament.
He prefers to divide the Persija Jakarta team into two teams to appear in the 2022 Presidential Cup.
Persija Jakarta youth team played against Barito Putera and RANS Nusantara FC with the result of defeat.
The Persija Jakarta senior team continued to meet Borneo FC and Madura United.
As a result, the senior team also lost to Borneo FC with a score of 1-2 in the 2022 President’s Cup Group B match at Segiri Stadium, Samarinda, East Kalimantan, Saturday (25/6/2022).
In last night’s match, Persija Jakarta went down by relying on local players.
“I give a message to the players that without foreign players you have to fight for the starting position.”
“But what we can see in this match are some players who are not ready to play 90 minutes,” said Thomas Doll.
The Persija Jakarta senior team has one more match against Madura United on Tuesday (28/6/2022).
It was Persija Jakarta’s last match in the 2022 Presidential Cup because it was confirmed that they had failed to qualify for the last eight.
