FI 12: Goran Gancev - I hope in five to 10 years Liga 1 will be very attractive for Euro players

Goran Gancev is one of the nomads of the Indonesian League. The veteran defender has featured for PSMS Medan, Persebaya, Semen Padang, Borneo, Arema, Gresik United and now Sriwijaya FC. His sort of footballing story is rarely told. He was capped at Under-21 level for his native Macedonia and then pinballed around other Leagues in Eastern Europe before ending up travelling to Indonesia for a new start one Christmas Day. Gancev has island-hopped in Liga 1 too. But, as he nears the end of his career and starts a family, he reflects on his career, the countries in which he has played, the Indonesian experience and what lies ahead. He spoke to me in outside a shopping mall in Palembang in the most recent break in Liga 1. Please forgive the background audio.

Speaking during the break for Ramadan, Tiago talked about his career as a player and on the sidelines. He also discussed his potential solutions to the problems in Indonesia football, the special reasons he has stayed so long in this country, the importance of intelligent players, WhatsApp and his attacking philosophies. You have to listen to the passion of Jacksen F. Tiago.
