The prestige of foreign players in Liga 1 2023/2024 is quite striking. This can be seen from the list of top scorers this season.
Until week 13 of League 1, Gustavo Almeida still feels at home in the top position in the temporary top scorer list for League 1 this season. The Arema FC striker has scored nine goals.
Then Junior Brandao (Madura United) and Alex Martins (Dewa United) finished second. The two Brazilian strikers both scored seven goals.
Meanwhile, Carlos Fortes (PSIS Semarang), Murilo Mendes (Barito Putera), Kenzo Nambu (PSM Makassar) and Bruno Moreira (Persebaya Surabaya) finished third. The four players have so far scored six goals.
Meanwhile, no local strikers were involved in scoring goals until week 13 of League 1 this season. Ramadhan Sananta, who is the mainstay of the U-23 Indonesian National Team, has only scored five goals in 10 matches with Persis Solo.
Apart from Ramadhan Sananta, Hokky Caraka, who is one of the strikers who led the Indonesian U-23 National Team to qualify for the 2024 U-23 Asian Cup, is still having difficulty scoring goals in Liga 1 2023/2024. The reason is, the 19 year old striker has appeared in 12 matches with PSS Sleman, but has only scored two goals.
