“We do a lot of rotation. Moreover, foreign players are also not in a 100 percent fit condition,” said Octavian.
Even though they won, Octavian admitted that his team still had a number of shortcomings that had to be corrected immediately before making it to the final four. Luckily in Jogja they only played once, so they had enough time to prepare the team.
“Right now we’re just keeping the condition of the players. Especially foreign players so they don’t get injured and their motivation goes down. Foreign players in Proliga still influence local players. So we will continue to watch over it. What is clear is that we don’t want to hitch a ride in the Proliga,” he said.
Jakarta BIN’s success in entering the final four at Prologa 2023 cannot be separated from the support of BIN chief General Police (Purn.) Budi Gunawan. His team will continue to advance to the next round by showing the best performance.
