From the negative side, the presence of the new coach figure will try to exploit Aji with Persela squad in order to win the game against PS TNI in the game.
“If positive, old players who do not fit the old coach can find a new figure. However, the problem is that the new coach also needs to adapt. This may be usable, “he said.
Moreover, Aji Santoso admitted, had learned the pattern of PS PS game from previous matches. Although at that time, PS TNI still trained by Ivan Kolev who is currently no longer with the team.
With such conditions, Aji Santoso is optimistic, Persela will again achieve the perfect points to mengatrol position that is currently stuck in the 14th position, with Raihan 27 points from 24 times a game.
“Because playing at home, we must memforsir to achieve three points. If the half goal was already three points, I do not matter, which is important how we get full points, “said Aji Santoso.
If successful get an additional three points from the contra game PS TNI, most likely the position of Persela in the standings will rush up. Given, the two teams above it Semen Padang and Sriwijaya FC, just one point with the same number of matches.
