“Mario Gomez is currently in Argentina filing paperwork to come to Indonesia. The 60-year-old coach will arrive in Bandung and be introduced to the Bobotoh [fans] in early December 2017,” Persib management says.

“For glory and a better Persib, here’s for Mario Gomez to help reach the dreams of the management and Bobotoh. Persib Salawasna [Forever]!”

Persib—previously tipped to become the champions—sit 13th out of 18 clubs in the final standings of Liga 1 this season.
