Thomas Doll said that his time was wasted considering Andritany Ardhiyasa and his friends had to return to Makassar from Parepare where the trip took up to three hours.
“Because my team has to travel three hours to get home. There’s no way the visiting coach has to wait until the press conference is over. This can’t be happening. You have to change that,” he added.
Persija Jakarta through its media officer, Muhammad Nadhil, reported that there was a slight miscommunication and about three minutes late from the press conference schedule.
“There was a bit of a miscom, actually, and it happened to be about 3 minutes behind schedule, plus the coach was tired, so he grumbled,” said Nadhil.
This draw makes Persija move up to fifth position in the Liga 1 standings with 4 points from three matches. While PSM remains at the top with 7 points.
