| JAKARTA (25 Sept 2009) – Persib Bandung are almost certain to land Thailand’s top goalkeeper Kosin Hathairattanakool on a four-month loan spell following the injury to their current No. 1 Tema Mursadat.
With the Indonesian Super League (ISL) due to start next month, Persib Bandung are in a spot following the continued unavailability of Tema.
But even though Persib have almost confirmed their signing of Kosin, still the later will only be available sometime in November.
Kosin (pix) is still with Thai Premier League side Chonburi FC and where they are now in a two-horse race against Muang Thong United for the title this year.
“Kosin will miss two matches for Persib (against PSM Makassar and Persiba Balikpapan). We are looking for him to play for us for at least four months or half a season,” added Umuh Muchtar, the manager for Persib Bandung.
Umuh said that the reason for the loan spell is also because Kosin will be attending trials with J-League side Gamba Osaka in March.
Persib is hopeful that by then, Tema will be back in action for the club.
