Sierra Leone defender Alie Sesay says he was happy with the way they performed against Madura United in their last league win. 

Persebaya deservedly defeated Madura United 1-0 in a tough League OneBRI Liga 1 at the Maguwoharjo Stadium, Sleman on Saturday. 

Brazilian Jose Wilkson Teixeira Rocha only goal proved the difference between the two sides, with the Leone Stars defender playing the full throttle of the game.

The 27-year-old says the win was a professional team performance. Madura United was a good value for the victory. 

“We knew that it was going to be a difficult game, but our mentality and composure gave us the edge over them,” Sesay to FSL Sport.

“As a team, we played against a tough side, but we maintained our disciplined. It was a case of us riding the storm and protecting our lead for almost 40-minutes.”

Madura United coach Fabio Lefundes has said the match against Persebaya was not an easy match considering the opponents they faced were quite good opponents and had quality.

Since joining the team, Sesay has made nine appearances helping the team to six wins, two draws and a defeat.

Sesay, a former Leicester academy graduate, was named in the Indonesia top-tier Team of the Week after another superb performance.
