Indonesian League 1 News: Bahrain national team striker, Abdulla Yusuf Helal is the last puzzle piece for the Persija Jakarta squad to face the 2022/2023 Indonesian Liga 1 season. The 29-year-old striker was inaugurated to fill the Asian player slot. He is bound by a three-year contract.
Started his professional career in his home country, Bahrain. At that time he played for East Riffa (2014-2017) and Al-Muharraq (2017-2018). Starting the 2018-2019 season, the Bahrain national team player tried his luck in the Czech Republic.
Yusuf had defended several big clubs in the Fortuna League (the Czech Republic’s highest caste league), starting from Bohemians 1905 (2018-2019) then continuing to Slovan Liberec and Slavia Prague where Michael Krmencik and Ondrej Kudela also played for the club.
With the Bahrain national team, Abdulla Yusuf has appeared in 59 matches with five goals. He scored the last two goals while appearing in the 2023 Asian Cup Qualifiers.
Apart from being in the Czech League, the player who was born in Riffa City was recorded to have felt the atmosphere of the most prestigious matches on the Blue Continent, such as the Europa League and Champions League matches.
Persija Jakarta coach, Thomas Doll, is optimistic that the presence of Abdulla Yusuf can make his team’s front line more fierce. Moreover, the attack line of the Kemayoran Tigers has also been filled with quality striker Michael Krmencik. Both are expected to work together to make the team’s attack line more fierce.
“I am happy that this team is finally complete. He is a player who has a high mentality and I hope he can add variety to the team’s attack,” said Thomas Doll as reported by the official website.
Although he did not participate in the introduction at the team and jersey launching event last Saturday (16/7) afternoon, Abdulla Yusuf has certainly arrived in Indonesia to join the team before the 2022/2023 Liga 1 season kick off.
In the first week’s match, Persija Jakarta is scheduled to face last season’s defending champion, Bali United at the Captain I Wayan Stadium, Dipta, Gianyar, Saturday (23/7) tonight.
