Even though he resigned, Azrul’s confidants are still in the management
Azrul Ananda chose to resign. His resignation letter will be submitted Monday (19/9).
Even so, all of his confidants were still in the management ranks. He will also really release Persebaya at the end of this season. Until the Green Force gets a new investor.
During that time, Azrul ensured that he would continue to oversee Persebaya’s performance in Liga 1. Including trying his best to meet the target of finishing in the top three.
”I’m not someone who runs away from responsibility. I will finish this. We will finish this season as best we can,” Azrul said at a press conference at Sutos yesterday (16/9) afternoon.
”God willing (finish top three). If not, I’ve already resigned,” continued Azrul.
The problem is, Green Force ‘s performance is falling. Three games in a row went through with defeats. Not to mention the condition of several key players who are injured, such as Higor Vidal, Leo Lelis, and Brylian Aldama.
Luckily, Liga 1 will pause for two weeks following the FIFA Matchday agenda. Persebaya coach Aji Santoso will take advantage of the break to fix the team.
Moreover, the opponent after the break was a tough rival: Arema FC. The first East Java derby of the season will be held at Kanjuruhan Stadium, Malang Regency, on October 1.
