Persib Turn To Udo For Good Fortune

Persib have finally called time on Djibril Coulibaly, their new signing from Barito Putra. The striker who made his debut for the West Java team against Persita in the Inter Island Cup, scoring in the process, has been injured for a while now and club had been mumbling about releasing him for some time now.

Now, it seems they have bitten the bullet and let him go. However, in true Persib fashion, they have moved quickly to release him, snapping up Fortune Udo to lead their goal chase in the Indonesia Super League that begins next month.

For a 25 year, Udo has certainly been around the block. He first created waves in this part of the world when he was part of Sporting Afrique, a one off venture that played in the SLeague several years back.

He must have impressed because he moved to Balestier Khalsa in 2006 before heading across the Causeway to Negeri Sembilan.

His first spell in Indonesia was short lived with Arema before moving to Persikab and then a prolific season with Persiba Bantul which made clubs round the region sit up and take notice.

He eventually moved to Binh Duong in Vietnam and from there he headed to Israel and Ramat HaSharon.

And now he is back in Indonesia with Persib!

2005-2006 Sporting Afrique 10 games 5 goals
2006-2008 Balestier Khalsa 25 23
2008-2009 Negeri Sembilan 20 14
2009-2010 Arema 12 4
2010-2011 Persikab 22 9
2011-2012 Persiba Bantul 26 34
2012-2013 Binh Duong 24 8

Udo's time with Arema is actually on the 2nd half of 2008-09 ISL season.. he only stayed until the end of said season..
