Suara.com – Persija Jakarta veteran defender Maman Abdurrahman feels he is a ‘minority’ at his club because currently the composition of the Kind Kemayoran squad is mostly filled with young people aged less than 30 years.
Maman, who is currently 39 years old, is one of the oldest players in the Persija squad besides Ismed Sofyan (41), Tony Sucipto (35) and Otavio Dutra (37).
“Now it feels a bit strange, doesn’t it. I have to be the one to enter their (game) (the Persija youth players) because I am like a minority in the team,” Maman said as published by Antara.
However, this condition actually made Maman more motivated to give the best for the team. Because, apart from helping Persija, Maman also has to set an example for his juniors.

“Honestly, it just keeps me excited,” said Maman.
Maman and other Persija Jakarta players are currently on holiday during the Emergency Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) implemented in Java and Bali on 3-20 July 2021.
Persija’s coaching staff asked the players to routinely carry out the training program that had been given at their respective homes.
However, it is not certain when the 2021-2022 Liga 1 will start. The plan is that PT LIB will roll out a new Liga 1 season starting in mid-August 2021 or approximately one month after the Java-Bali Emergency PPKM ends.
