Persela Lamongan to retire number 1 shirt

Persela Lamongan have officially announced the retirement of shirt number 1 which was worn by late goalkeeper Choirul Huda.

Choirul Huda passed away following an on-field collision with teammate Ramon Rodriguez and Semen Padang FC striker Marcel Sacramento on Sunday.

“The number 1 is officially retired, because this dedication is our respect to the loyalty of Huda,” said Persela’s manager Yunan Achmadi on the club’s official website on Monday.

“Huda was one of Lamongan’s best sons, he was the legendary goalkeeper who was always loyal and faithful to defend Persela until the end of his life,” he added.
