According to Hendri, the defense problem arose because all the defenders were new players.

The names of Persiraja defenders such as Muhammad Rifaldi, Subhan Fajri, Leonardo Lelis and Muhammad Robi have only just played for the “Laskar Rencong” squad in the 2021-2022 season.

“So they still need to adapt and stuff,” said the 55-year-old tactician.

Hendri assessed that the condition of the players in general was less stable in the match versus PSM.

Their physique continues to decline and makes the opponent free to take advantage of the attack space.

“We were able to keep up with PSIS during the half round. After that, we ran out of energy,” said Hendri as published by Antara.
