Jakarta. Persib Bandung has issued an official statement saying its head coach, Djadjang Nurdjaman, will stay, despite earlier rumors regarding his plans to resign.
The Asian Football Confederation licensed coach was pushed heavily by Persib supporters to step down when his team lost with Bhayangkara on June 4, after which he told the club he was going to resign.
On Monday (12/06), a day after winning a Liga 1 game against Persiba Balikpapan, Persib announced Djadjang will stay.
"We've put off Djadjang's resignation issue. The team is still on the right track to defend Indonesia's most elite league title," sixth-placed Persib said.
"We appreciate Djadjang's professional behavior as head coach ... With this announcement, we hope speculations will stop."
In 2014, Djadjang won the Indonesia Super League with Persib.
