Rashid is arguably coach Robert Alberts’ most successful purchase. Even though it was his first time playing in Indonesia, he quickly adapted. He immediately set up with the Persib squad and Indonesian football.
The owner of the back number 74 even became Persib’s top scorer with a collection of five goals. The details are two braces against Persita Tangerang and PS Sleman (PSS), and one against Persela Lamongan.
This number of goals is more than other Persib strikers. Wander Luiz, for example, who has just emerged in the second series of Liga 1, only scored four goals. Meanwhile, Geoffrey Castillion scored two goals and Ezra Walian scored one goal.
Not only good at scoring goals, Rashid also recorded two assists which were converted into goals. This record is the same as that collected by left-back Zalnando.
Rashid also never missed playing. A total of 11 matches were played as starters and the majority played the full 90 minutes. In total, he recorded appearances for 970 minutes. This is one of the most among other Persib players.
As an anchor midfielder, Rashid is good at breaking the opponent’s attack. However, he is also good at assisting attacks. Intelligence and emotional are also awake. He rarely commits a ‘dirty’ foul that results in a card.
Of the 11 matches played, Rashid only got one yellow card, which was against Bali United. Instead, he actually violated many opposing players.
