The presence of Lorenzo Berra, Elia Di Guiliomaria, and Shaban Kingazi adds a new color to this season's #GarudaSelect Program, especially for players from Indonesia who have the same position. There is Hokky Caraka on the attack line and Edgard Amping who is in the same position as Shaban.
According to Hokky and Edgard, competition within the team does exist. However, this is a common thing because in reality there will always be competition in any team. In fact, it can be a motivation to push ourselves to be even better. In addition, players from Indonesia can also learn directly from players from other countries.
For instance, Edgard, whose position last season at left back was almost irreplaceable. In this season, the arrival of Shaban does not make him feel threatened. The two players, even regularly exchange experiences.
"Shaban adds strength to the #GarudaSelect team and he makes us learn new lessons from his style of play, so during the training, we learn each other's strengths and weaknesses, exchange ideas, etc. This helps us to be even better," said Edgard.
Meanwhile, Hokky Caraka admitted that with Lorenzo in the training, he becomes even more motivated to get better and better. "For me, he is like a competitor, of course we are competing in positive way. But fact, we can even become solid duet friends in front," said Caraka.
The front line has indeed become one of the sectors with quite fierce competition. Besides Lorenzo and Hokky, there is still Faiz Maulana who also has pretty good potential. In an internal test match some time ago, the three of them managed to score goals.
Faiz scored two goals, while Lorenzo and Hokky scored one each. This proves that healthy competition can make a very positive contribution to the overall team performance!
