Jakarta – In addition to Marco Motta, Persija Jakarta is also rumored to be aiming at a Japanese footballer, Keisuke Honda. Rumors sticking out made The Jakmania invade the former AC Milan player's Instagram account.
Persija learned a lot from the less than maximum results that were embraced in Shopee Liga 1 2019. Tigers Kemayoran only finished in the top ten final standings of the most prestigious soccer competition in Indonesia.
According to Persija's CEO, Ferry Paulus, the management is in communication with Honda. But, there is no final agreement between the two parties.
"Indeed, we interact as well as with a number of players including those who were said to be Honda," Ferry Paulus said.
Meanwhile, if Persija really intends to bring Honda, then the Kemayoran Tigers also have to spend no small amount. Because, from the Transfermarkt data, Honda's price is in the amount of 1 million euros or equivalent to Rp15.2 billion.
The Jakmania is quite enthusiastic about the rumors linking Persija to Keisuke Honda. Some of them began to storm the Japanese player's Instagram account.
Although no agreement has yet taken place, some fans have welcomed Honda. There were also those who persuaded Honda to join Persija.
"Welcome to Persija Jakarta, Keisuke Honda," wrote one fan.
"Come to Persija bro," wrote another fan.
"Come on, Bang come to Persija."
"Come on, Keisuke, come to Persija. We need you, "said another fan.
The enthusiasm of the supporters of Persija Jakarta was considered normal. Keisuke Honda is not a new name on the international soccer scene. His work with AC Milan in 2014-2017 was enough to invite admiration.
Latest, Keisuke Honda also became the brains behind the convincing performance of the Cambodia U-22 national team at the 2019 SEA Games. Reportedly, Keisuke Honda was involved in determining the tactics and strategy of Felix Dalmas's team. .
