"Yes we can see that the rich foreign players the club brought in the person of Essien , Cole, and Matsunaga are constantly on the bench. I think only Vlado (Vladimir) is the only effective one," he is quoted by Sriwijaya.

"There are other considerations why they are not on top. Whether its physical or not, Essien and Cole have not been at the top level.

"Try to compare with other teams, other teams always take advantage of foreign players and marquee signings. I don't think they will be here after the first round."

The Ghana international have previously played for European clubs like Lyon, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Panathinaikos,before making the move to the Asian world.
