The Worst Kept Secret
So it's confirmed. Baihakki Khaizan, Shahril Ishak and Nova Arianto are surplus to requirements at Persib and are being released. Three other names could well be let out on loan.
Are they the right departures? Obviously changes needed to be made. The club boast perhaps the strongest squad in the country yet the only time they really performed in the first half of the season was a 5-1 thumping of Persiba.
Too often they never showed up and a nadir was reached away to PSPS when a performance so devoid of any passion or committment got away lightly with a 1-0 defeat.
They're on to their third coach of the season. With these changes will it be enough to turn the season around or do deeper cuts need contemplating?
