Bambang Considers Persija Exit

Like a horse and carriage Bambang Pamungkas and Persija are a partnership many thought was timeless. With the exception of two years in Malaysia with Selangor and a few months in Netherlands with EHC Norad Bambang has spent the last 12 years with Persija. An unheard of period of time in Indonesian football.

Now though that time could be drawing to a close. With the confusion over who will own Persija this coming season Bambang is suggesting he may leave the club if the situation isn't sorted satisfactorily.

The FA have decided a new faction will lead the club, a decision that has been met with fury by Persija fans while the players have also expressed disquiet over the decision with Bambang being quoted as saying he hopes the old leadership retains control.

Should Bambang decide to leave Persija expect no shortage of suitors in Indonesia. And can we expect some overseas interest? Last year he had trials with Wellington Phoenix in the A League but his wage demands would have been to high while the temperature would have been too low!
