RD To Persebaya?

Strong rumours are linking Indonesia's most successful coach, Rahmad Darmawan, with newly promoted Indonesia Super League club Persebaya.

This follows another story doing the rounds a few days back linking the widely travelled Marcos Falopa, currently coaching East Bengal, with the Arema job.

There certainly seems to be something going on in East Java. The owners of Arema are being linked with taking over Persikubar, who provided the rump of Persebaya when the latter opted to stay with the ISL set up when the leagues, and Persebaya went on to join the ill fated Indonesia Premier League.

The IPL Persebaya will not be allowed to enter the new ISL next season.

For observers of Indonesian football there is a pattern emerging. Darmawan, who won the title with Persipura and Sriwijaya, is thought to be close to a group influential in football having worked with them at Pelita Jaya and Arema.

However, Darmawan is also said to have had talks with Malaysian side Terengganu.

Read between the lines, lah.
