Besides that, Persib defender Nick Kuipers said the victory over Persija was very important. Player number 2 considers this victory to continue his record of 10 unbeaten matches which is an important capital for the second round of League 1 2022-2023.
Nick Kuipers did not hesitate to claim that the Maung Bandung squad continues to experience positive changes after being coached by Luis Milla.
“Right now we are confident, this team is getting stronger in playing. Like against Persija last, they had almost no dangerous chances, maybe there is one. This important victory is of course very good for the team who will have an important match,” said the player from the Netherlands that.
Kuipers, who appeared militant when he met the Kemayoran Tigers, considered that the strong family atmosphere within Persib was one of the keys to his team’s current success.
“There is a failure, for example, like missing a penalty, which is normal in football. However, the most important thing is how they unite and get back up to win the game,” he said.
