Mursyid Effendi (Persabaya Surabaya)

For anywhere in the world staying with your local club for 15 years is a rare thing. Especially in Indonesia where players seem to spend more time packing their bags than kicking a ball around. Which makes Effendi a bit special. He was born in Surabaya, a true boyo arek, in 1972. He joined his boyhood club in 1992 and he has been there ever since.

His trophy cabinet is a bit on the light side, just a couple of Championships and First Division gongs from an eventful career. Three of them have come in the last 4 years as Surabaya have experienced a yoyo time between the 2 divisions.

Wonder if he got a testimonial?
