The first player we selected for this season is Wawan Hendrawan. His overall performance in the first game of the season was good. Besides that, we picked out Wawan because he stopped another important penalty against Persik Kediri. Wawan is getting noticed for stopping penalties lately and it starts to be a trademark for the Bali United goalkeeper. “Spiderman” Wawan is playing for Bali United since 2017 and is a popular player in the squad. Even with huge competition from Nadeo, he is still considered as Bali United’s number one goalkeeper at the moment.
Because of the Wawan’s important save, Bali United did get their three points!
Bali United vs Persik Kediri 1-0
Our second player is Marc Klok! Switching between Indonesia’s two biggest clubs and rivals isn’t easy and always appreciated but Marc did it. There isn’t a better start than producing the winning goal in the opening match of the season for your new club. Marc Klok recently moved from Persija to Persib Bandung where he is reunited with his former PSM coach Robert Alberts. The player and businessman Klok isn’t the only player with Dutch roots at Persib at the moment. Besides coach Robert Alberts, Nick Kuipers and Ezra Walian are also part of the impressive Persib selection for this season.
Marc scored the winning goal in the 86th minute, which gave Persib the first three points of the season.
Persib vs Barito Putera 1-0
