Kitchee's head coach Jose Molina Jimenez seeks victory against PERSIB as his farewell gift for the club as he will be parting ways and returning to his homeland after the match held at Bandung's Si Jalak Harupat. He refused to extend the stay with the Hong Kong side despite a successful spell.
Molina told pre-match press conference that the game against PERSIB will be his last and hinted that family is his major reason behind the decision. He insisted that the team is conducive and he is happy managing the club, but prefers to travel back to Spain and continues his career there.
"The match against PERSIB will be my last with Kitchee, because after this I will be returning back to Spain. Nothing is going wrong with the team, but my contract with Kitchee will end and I don't intend to extend," he told reporters.
Accordingly, he wants to mark his last dedication for the team with an away victory as well as to secure the spot in AFC Cup's quarterfinal. He wants to present good memory for the supporters and management of the Hong Kong side.
"So I hope to procure sweet memory in Bandung and we will strive for it. I trust my team, they will play focused and avoid unnecessary mistakes," he closed.
