Syamsul joins Persija
Defensive midfielder Syamsul Haeruddin has joined Rahmad Darmawan's Persija revolution. The former PSM man brings the squad to 22 with space still for one more foreigner.
RD has really torn the guts out of Persija with Bambang Pamungkas, Aliyudin, M Ilham and Ismed Sofyan the only regulars to survice the culling.
In have come Hendro Kartiko, Precious Emuejeraye, Ambrizal, M Nasuha and Tony Sucipto from Sriwijaya as well as Eric Arsene Bayemi, Julius Akosah and Greg Nwokolo back for a second stint.
Given Sriwijaya's well documented weaknesses at the back last season Persija fans will be worried that RD has brought most of that back line with hime while allowing stalwart Herman Abanda to move on. Possibly to Persib Bandung.
