Persebaya looking for new coach

It finally happened. Persebaya, under pressure from fans as well as poor form, finally sacked their coach Danurwindo after only 5,000 fans turned up for their home game against Persijap which they drew 1-1.

An impressive start to the season had seen the boys from Surabaya rattling in goals for fun with five against Persisam, four against PSPS and Persiwa seeing them stake an early challenge for the title. But they were shipping goals alarmingly, four against Persija, Persiwa and Persib, and the central defensive pairing of Anderson da Silva and Takashita Uchida looked nervous.

Luck plays an incredible but overlooked role in football and had Danurwindo's men received just a bit more then I would not be writing this post. They mullered Persipura at home yet ended losing 1-0. They fought bravely away to Arema only to see a last minute penalty awarded against them in controversial penalties. Lengthy injuries to crucial players like Claude Ngon A Djam Parfait and Anang Ma'aruf also told.

But football is a cruel master and the league table a demanding partner. One win in their last seven tells its own tale.

Rudy Keltjes is one name being touted as successor.
