Borneo FC Samarinda got tested again. This time the test for Pesut Etam is ahead of the match against Barito Putera. Borneo FC can not be accompanied by coach Iwan Setiawan in the Derby of Papadaan match.


The reason Iwan Setiawan was suspended to accompany his team in two matches in the future. The punishment came into effect when Borneo FC against Barito Putra at the 17 Mei Stadium, Banjarmasin and PSM Makassar, on October 8th in Samarinda.


The punishment is the impact of the words of Iwan who called hard criticizing PT Liga Indonesia Baru after the match against Bhayangkara FC, (9/20). In addition to sanctions ban accompanying the team in the stadium's bench, Iwan is also subject to a fine of Rp 10 million.


Head Media Officer of Borneo FC, Abe Hedly confirmed the news. During the sanctions, his team will be accompanied by assistant coach Ahmad Amiruddin. "Yes, it's true, coach Iwan is on suspension, so temporarily the team will be accompanied by coach Amir," he said.


Without Iwan, Borneo FC will still try to perform optimally against Barito Putera. Pesut Etam still targets 3 points in order to shift Barito in the 8th position of the standings in Go-Jek Traveloka Liga 1.


On the other hand, this is for the many times for Ahmad Amiruddin to accompany the team on the sidelines of the field. A few months ago, during the era of Dragan Djukanovic, he also had experienced similar conditions. One of it was while holding a draw 2-2 Persib Bandung at Gelora Lautan Api Stadium, Bandung.


Fortunately, in those two games, Borneo FC Samarinda always defeated his opponent. "All the decisions are fixed from the head coach, when I am given the mandate I will take it seriously." said Ahmad Amiruddin. (DMZ/KOK)
