More Bad News For Arema
Arema, the IPL version, aren't giving up. At least we can say that. Their fans have; just 500 saw their last game. Yep, 500!
They've faced problems all season with the most spectacular seeing two Arema teams turn up for a home game against Bontang, a game that was eventually cancelled.
Then Singapore striker Noh Alam Shah quit and he has since been followed a number of other big names including keeper Megia Kurnia and Esteban who has signed for Persiba. Kurnia, along with Hendro Siswanto and Dendi Santoso have joined Arema the ISL version.
Into the IPL version have come Latvian keeper and no relation to the former Russian royal family Denis Romanov as well as striker Purwanto, a prolific striker in the lower leagues, and Amandeus Suropati as the club somewhat hilariously prepare for the AFC Cup.
