Mario Gomez has a special CV. He once brought Johor Darul Takzim to the Malaysian Super League twice in a row, and the AFC Cup 2015.
The figure of Argentine origin became the ninth foreign coach at the club from the Flower City. Maung Bandung-nicknamed Persib-first appoints foreign trainers in the 1990s, Marek Janota, who was then appointed chief advisor.
Afterwards, several names follow, such as Marek Andrzej Sledzinowski (Poles), Juan Antonio Paez (Chile), Arcan Iurie (Moldova), Darko Janackovic (France), Jovo Cuckovic (Serbia), Drago Mamic (Serbia), Dejan Antonic (Serbia) , and Argentine Mario Gomez.
However, in fact from all the import coaches that no one who won the title. Including Janota is actually meritorious arouse Bandung football though not deliver the trophy.
The worst is Sledzianowski. He was appointed in 2003, but failed miserably and even underwent six games without a win.
Antonio Paez became a substitute. Appointed in 2003, the Chilean coach's successful rescue Persib from the relegation zone.
It was rewarded with a contract extension. However, the best achievement is to bring Persib sixth finish in the Western League Indonesia.
Even so with Dejan Antonic who had handled the team at ISC 2016 ago. He even had disliked some fans who asked him to come down and finally only handle Persib in six games.
Now the question is whether Mario Gomez can break the curse? Quite interesting to look forward to.
