Persebaya Surabaya is starting to show a positive record in the BRI Liga 1 2022/2023. Persebaya has now managed to pack three points from a total of two matches that have been played.

The team nicknamed Bajul Ijo lost 0-1 to Persikabo 1973 in the first week of BRI Liga 1 (25/7/2022). Most recently, they won 2-0 over Persita Tangerang at the Gelora Bung Tomo Stadium, Surabaya, Monday (1/8/2022).

In terms of games, Persebaya Surabaya did show a pretty good improvement. The players were able to demonstrate the style of play that had been instructed by coach Aji Santoso well.

“Foreign players Persebaya in my opinion have also performed quite well. Hopefully this can continue to increase as long as the competition revolves, “said Aji Santoso.

The club from the City of Heroes still needs a process to be able to consistently gain points. Understandably, there is a reshuffle of players this season compared to last season. Persebaya Surabaya is now inhabited by many young, inexperienced players.

“With different players, even today’s players, with young players, with extraordinary passion, this team is not inferior to yesterday (last season). Many players from internal (competition),” he added.

Last season, Persebaya had a fantastic season despite not winning. They are in fifth place in the final standings. The situation is almost the same, relying on young players who lack experience.

Persebaya management is now raising the target for Aji Santoso for next season by breaking into the top three positions, or tickets to compete in Asian competitions. For two seasons, the 51-year-old coach was also given the burden of scoring the winning team.

“Together with Persebaya, they (young players) entered training showing tremendous improvement. What is clear is that it has been targeted at me, to my team, by management, at least to be in the top flight, especially in the top three,” he said.

“I believe in my players, even though there are many young and new players, I see they understand how to play. I have a belief, God willing, that target can be met, ‚Äúsaid the coach from Malang.

Next, Persebaya will play an away party in the third week. They are scheduled to visit Bhayangkara FC headquarters at Wibawa Mukti Stadium, Cikarang, Bekasi, Sunday (7/8/2022).
