Head coach Robert Alberts confirmed in The Star Sarawak that he was being pursued by Bandung FC citing that Indonesian teams normally pay higher if compared to the deal he is offered in Sarawak. He added that working conditions in Malaysia and Indonesia is different with the later having over 70,000 football fans thronging their stadium.
However, he stressed that he is keen to see through his contract with Sarawak which is reported to only end this coming November.
Indonesian press has been reporting that Persib Bandung FC is on the verge of signing Alberts as their coach, with many Persib fans already welcoming Alberts to their team.
The Sarawak fans however have been silent over the issue, but one or two fans have revealed that they would like to see Alberts stay with the Crocs.
Alberts left for Indonesia in 2009 after the Sarawak Football Association(FAS) fell into a deep financial crisis. His stints at Indonesian Arema FC and PSM Makassar between 2009-2011 placed him as one of the most respected foreign coaches in the Indonesian league after he help both teams perform well in the league.
Despite that, Alberts however choose to return to Sarawak in 2011 after the FAS took on a new management and was able to stabalize their finances.
