Persib Head To Purwokerto Without Essien
Persib enter a new era of 'Galatico' with the signing for Ghana international Michael Essien. But while the former Chelsea player may work wonders in raising the profile of the football club he will not be involved in every game.
For example this weekend Persib are heading to Purwokerto to play in a Trofeo competition their. Alongside the newly famous Persib are Purwokerto Selection and African All Stars!
While Essien may be used to the finer things in travel when it comes to away days, the Persib payers are heading east by train, a six hour journey followed by two 45 minute games tomorrow. Then they return home.
Essien however won't be experiencing this side of life in Indonesia at least just yet. He is not part of the travelling party. However this is no special treatment for the 34 year old. Also absent from the train were Sergio Van Dijk, Vladimir Vujovic, Dedi Kusnandar, Febri Hariyadi and Gian Zola Nugraha.
