After Tampines Rovers have convinced Singapore football fans that they are in for a real business in this year’s AFC Cup campaign with a 4-0 win against Bangladeshi Premier League champion, Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi, another S.League club, Balestier Khalsa is going to give the similar tournament their second shot this coming week.
A quick visit to Bandung where we chatted with former Kitchee & current Persib Bandung’s head coach, Dejan Antonic, the former FIFA World Youth Championship winner is expecting nothing short of an exciting match.
“I am still following the progress of the team (Kitchee) very closely here in Indonesia. Apart from the change of coach, the team changed a little of their playing strategy this season as well. Although they are a couple of points behind Eastern Sports Club in the Hong Kong Premier League, the team still has what it takes to produce a good show in Singapore,” said Dejan.
“For my good friend Marko, I believe he and his team will be more ready and prepared as compared to last year since both teams have played against each other previously. They will be able to analyse their opponent much better now. Then again, sometimes football is like when you wake up on the right side of the bed, everything will be right. Having said that, I am still certain that will be a good and exciting game comes Tuesday,” added Dejan.
Before the Persib Bandung’s head coach left the training field, he has got a final message for his good friend, Balestier Khalsa’s head coach, Marko Kraljevic…
“Hey Marko, you are still fat!”
