An exciting moment for the future of Indonesian football. After Bagus Kahfi who joined FC Utrecht, now Brylian Aldama, left for Croatia on Thursday (2/4) night to join one of the Croatian First Division clubs, HNK Rijeka.

Not only physical and technical training, mental and playing skills are other knowledge that Brylian has learned with #GarudaSelect.


Brylian has recorded the highest physical test results compared to other players in the yo-yo test. According to him, this success is inseparable from his discipline of maintaining a diet and resting so that he can stay optimally during exercise.

"Como players train 100 percent whether they are core players or not. They are not at all lazy in training and that's a lesson I can take," he said. Brylian is scheduled to arrive in Zagreb on April 2, 2021 and will immediately continue the journey to the city of Rijeka. From there his dream of pursuing a European football career will begin
