Ambitious Indonesian side Persib Bandung have revealed that they will be cancelling the contract of one of their star signings believed to be either Michael Essien or Carlton Cole.
The decision must be taken because the performance of the players have been considered “unsatisfactory”.
“Yes there must be one that should be replaced,” said Manager Umuh Muchtar in Bandung.
However, he was reluctant to mention the players who will be crossed out and stated he’d have to speak first with the club management.
Currently, Persib have two marquee players; Michael Essien and Carlton Cole.
Until the 16th week, only Essien had played regularly for the club. The Ghana midfielder recorded 14 appearances, scoring two goals.
Meanwhile, Cole have had to endure a difficult spell at the club, often sitting on the bench. The England striker has just appeared four times without scoring one goal.
“We have talked (with management) in the future how I submit it to management,” said Umuh.
According to Umuh, one of their expensive players did not bring changes for Persib. As a result, management must immediately cross out to improve the position in the standings.
“If we keep both and no change of players maybe we are in the end of the horn [sic],” said Umuh.
Currently, Persib are 14th on the log after 21 Liga 1. matches and played out a 1-1 result against Persija Jakarta at the weekend.
