Sierra Leone defender Alie Sesay revealed his delight after being named in the Indonesia BRI Liga 1 round 16 Team of the Week.

The former Leicester City player has been in fine form this season and was impressive in Persebaya 3-0 win over Persib at the Maguwuharjo Stadium on Wednesday.

In thirteen appearances for his Indonesian side, Sesay has helped the team unbeaten in twelve games, nine wins and three draws.

“It’s nice to be recognised for my good performance, and five clean sheets in a row is what every central defender wants,” Sesay to FSL Sports.

They are fourth on the log, seven points adrift from leaders Bhayangkara Surabaya and to compete for the championship title, a strong defence is a necessity.

Persebaya next outing is a home game against Bali United on Monday.
