Persik & Persiwa Booted Out Of ISL
You can't help but wonder just what the criteria is. Indonesian clubs are notorious for paying salaries late or not at all...why just pick on Persiwa and Persik?
Persiwa's place in the ISL had been under threat after Martapura, one of their rivals for a promotion spot, complained the Highlanders had played a player who was serving a suspension for lamping a referee during a game. There was also talk Persiwa were short of cash.
With two clubs leaving it seems the next season will feature just 18 teams.
