Familiar Names, Unfamiliar Clubs

With Persipura, Semen Padang, Perseru and Persiram sitting out the President's Cup for whatever reason, they have allowed some of their players to play for other clubs on loan for the duration.

Leading the way is Boas Solossa. The veteran Persipura striker will be wearing Pusamania colours for their group stage games in Makassar, a real coup for the club that only made its debut in 2014 after taking over Perseba Super Bangkalan and moving them to Samarinda.

Persija have snapped up a couple of well known faces; Liberian international James Koko Lomell is one of those players who seems to get younger every year...with Persiram sitting out the President's Cup he has moved to Persija where he will link up with another loan signing, Nur Iskander from Semen Padang and the timeless Bambang Pamungkas. Not that it did the Kemayoran Tigers much cop, they lost their opening game 3-0 in front of a sell out crowd against Bali United.

ISL champions Persib have also been active in the loan market, bringing in the highly rated Zulham Zumrun from Persipura while they also welcome back Vladimir Vujovic and Ilija Spasojevic.

Hardly unfamiliar but the promising Evan Dimas has returned from his trial in Spain with praise ringing in his ears but no contract. Many will be watching to see how he does with Persebaya, now rebranded Persebaya United but still boycotted by most of their fans.

And a big signing for Arema as they have brought in another big name from Persipura, Lancine Kone in their bid to lift the Cup.

The President's Cup started today with Bali United defeating Persija 3-0 as mentioned earlier.
