Arema Clearout

Following a disappointing season by their standards, Arema have been busy telling players they are free to move on.

Among them is 41 years young striker Keith Kayamba. Following him out of the Arema revolving door are Joko Sasongko, Yericho Christiantoko and Engelberd Sani who are reported to have joined Persisam.

Hasyim Kipuw and Egi Melgiansyah are also leaving Arema.

With the exception of Kayamba, most of the players being released are pretty young. It will be interesting to see who is brought in to replace them. And their ages.

There is a suspicion clubs, and I'm not picking on Arema here, are quick to choose more experienced players than giving youth its head. Arema, it must be said, gave keeper Megia Kurnia his opportunity when he was young and he is still doing a job for them.

But nit everyone seems so keen on young players which must be a worry for the current Under 19 crop after their successes at the ASEAN and AFC competitions
