Arema Keep Mum On Milo Future

Arema say they will not make any decision on the future of coach Milomir Seslija until the Indonesia Soccer Championship season has ended. Despite winning the Bali Island Cup and the Piala Bhayangkara since arriving in Malang the club are reluctant to make any long term decision regarding his position.

With Arema having started the ISC so well, they are second two points behind leaders Madura United, Milo has reportedly been attracting interest from other clubs including Persipura who only recently appointed Angel Alfredo Vera to replace Jafri Sastra. It is unclear whether the Persipura link came before Vera took over of after.

If Arema do win the ISC then it seems the club will 'probably' extend Milo's contract but they are wary of his potential demands. Robert Alberts won the Indonesia Super League with Arema in 2009/10 but  his contract wasn't extended apparently because of his wage demands. He left, the team broke up and Arema won nothing until Milo arrived.

It does seem an odd idea that foreign coaches should expect a pay rise after winning the title. The impudence!
