Persib's Foreign Legion Fret Over Futures

When it comes to pre season planning few clubs are as on the ball as Persib. They have already snapped up Indonesian international Dedi Kusnander from Malaysian side Sabah and T Team striiker Patrick dos Santos Cruz. With chances high iconic defender Vladimir Vujovic will be retained after another impressive season and firm interest in former midfielder Makan Konateh, Diogo Ferreira, Robertinho and Marcos Flores will face a nervous few days while the club decides their fates.

Aussie defender Ferreira arrived for the second half of the season and he feels he has done enough to merit a new contract. 'From the 11 games I played with Persib partnering Vladimir in the heart of the defence we kept seven clean sheets.' However as he headed for Australia he admitted his future was most definitely uncertain. 'I've not talked to anyone about extending my contract with Persib. It's up to the manager and the coach. However I would be really happy if I can continue to play for this football club.

31 year old midfielder Flores arrived around the same time as Ferreira , managing just one goal and one assistant since first donning the Persib blue. The Argentine says he is happy with Persib and is open to extending his stay but is also realistic. 'If they don't need me any more I will move to another club.'

While Diogo and Marcos have had only a short spell in Indonesia Robertino has been around almost a decade. In that time he has played for Persija, Persiba, PSM and Persipura. The 33 year old midfielder is a known quantity and should Persib decide he is surplus to requirements he would have no shortage of suitors.

Meanshile coach Djadjang is heading to Thailand in January to complete his A licence. Indonesia Super League, and Indonesia Soccer Championship, regulations state coaches must have an A licence coach and PS TNI as well as Persija were forced to find new coaches mid season for breaching t his regulation. For some reason Persib weren't required to replace Djadjang
