In addition, losing to Borneo FC, the coach of Persela, Aji Santoso admitted the superiority of the hosting team. For him, whether to lose or to win in soccer is a natural thing. But he regretted the decision of referee Annas Aprilandi from Bandung who was not firm in leading the game.


"I'm sad and concerned about the referee's leadership, my player's bones are broken because of a violent clash from the opposing player, it's so sad that the opponent's player was only given a yellow card, and the game went by and I admitted that Borneo FC won, lose or win in football is likely to happen in football," said Aji.


The player that Aji means is Sandi Septian. Flavio who intend to block the ball by jumping raised his calf too high. Difficult to control, his feet unintentionally hit the body of Persela's players. The incident right in front of the referee was only awarded a yellow card.
