Jacksen stays at Persipura

Brazilian Jacksen Tiago has decided to extend his contract with ISL Champions Persipura. Jacksen is one of the most successful coaches in the country having also won the championship with Persebaya.

Funnily enough the Green Force from East Java had hoped to entice the toothpick chewing one back but now must start looking elsewhere as they prepare for a return to top flight football.

Last season began so well under Fredy Muli but come December financial worries saw him depart to be replaced by Moldovan Arcan Iurie. A less consistent second half to the season followed as Iurie's new signings struggled to settle and Persebaya went into a play off against PSMS, coincidentally Muli's old side, with Iurie out of contract and the highly rated Aji Santoso drafted in.

They won, on penalties, but Santoso was already committed to another newly promoted side, Persisam and the Surabaya team were left looking for another new coach.

With Jacksen no longer available they are runoured to be interested in former Persib, Deltras and Persik coach Jaya Hartono.
