Indonesian Gullit sidelined for 8 months due to ACL injury

Midfielder Amiruddin Bagus Kahfi just underwent the surgery after suffering a serious injury in a training match.

Playing for the Garuda Select in England, Amiruddin Bagus Kahfi suffered in an aerial duel against a Reading U18 player. After that, he was sent to the hospital to inspect and treat the injury.

According to English doctors, Indonesian Gullit had a problem in his ligament, which made him undergo surgery immediately. The Indonesia team Technical Director @Dennis Wise said Bagus Kahfi might be sidelined for 8 months.

As a result, he can miss the chance to play for the Indonesia U20 team in the 2021 U20 World Cup.

Considered one of the greatest talented young players in Indonesia at the moment, Amiruddin Bagus Kahfi had a trial with the English Premier League club Arsenal last year.

As a result, he was interested in numerous European teams, and he is ready to challenge himself after leaving Indonesia. At 17, Bagus Kahfi was called the Indonesian Gullit because of the similarity between his hairstyle and the Netherland football legend.

Speaking about the chance to play in Europe, Bagus Kahfi said he still had a contract with Barito Putera that made him stay at the Indonesian side until the end of 2021.

However, things would be different if they got a reasonable offer, and Bagus Kahfi also needed to prepare himself before moving to Europe to pursue his professional career.
