Arema Must Sweep The Rest of the Match


Arema FC President Gilang Widya Pramana asked Singo Edan’s troops to be able to wipe out the victory in the remaining three matches of the 2021/22 Indonesian League 1.

In a written statement, Thursday (17/3) Gilang said that the Arema FC squad was to be able to maintain the honor of Singo Edan and the supporters who are commonly known by the nickname Aremania.

“This is a serious message from me to Arema FC. Be aware, there are not many games left this season. But I ask you with respect, respect the name of Arema FC, respect our supporters by desperately trying to win the remaining matches,” said Gilang.

Gilang explained that the pride of the people of Malang Raya is no longer possible to win the league this season, but he asked the Arema FC squad to be able to fight to the death in the last three matches of this season.

Gilang emphasized that he wanted Arema FC at the end of the season to be the best team in East Java. He expects the Singo Edan squad to have great motivation to win the last three matches.

“End this season as the best team from East Java, the way, win, win, win! There is no compromise and no more excuses,” he said.

After a tight fight, towards the end of the Indonesian Liga 1 season, Arema FC had to end the competition for the champion in the 31st week. Several crucial points to be able to maintain the opportunity to become champions, had to be lost due to defeat.

In the last five matches, Arema FC was only able to pocket one full point against PS Barito Putera with a score of 2-1. Meanwhile, in the matches against Persebaya Surabaya, Persik Kediri, Persib Bandung and Bali United, Singo Edan lost.

Now the Singo Edan team is in 5th place in the standings with 58 points. At the top of the standings are Bali United with 69 points, followed by Persib Bandung with 66 points, Bhayangkara FC with 59 points and Persebaya Surabaya with 59 points.

In the next match Arema FC will face Borneo FC, Persikabo 1973 and the last match is against PSM Makassar. (OL-8)
