I Made Wirawan, PERSIB goalkeeper, tells us what success is!


Our partnership with FC PERSIB encouraged us to create a series of interviews with the most prominent players, as we want you to draw inspiration from people we have common values with.

This week, goalkeeper I Made Wirawan tells us about being purposeful and calm at the same time.

I Made Wirawan is an Indonesian footballer who currently plays for Persib Bandung in the Indonesia Super League championship as a goalkeeper.

Young Made began his football career as a striker. But suddenly it all changed when he joined a local club in his hometown. He said that, rather than scoring a goal against the opponent, he felt more satisfied after successfully securing the goal. He started his professional career at local teams from Bali, such as Perseden Denpasar and Persekaba Badung. Great motivation to become a professional goalkeeper came when he secured the goal of Perseden. 

In 2005 he moved to Persekaba Badung. With that club, he played well before being transferred to Persiba Balikpapan in mid 2007. I Made Wirawan landed at Balikpapan when Persiba were still struggling in the First Division Indonesian League. At the beginning of his arrival, many people doubted his performance. However, Made answered those doubts with incredible performance. He also successfully brought the team to promotion to the Indonesian Super League season 2008/2009.

Finally Persib Bandung successfully obtained the signature of the goalkeeper. He officially moved to Persib starting from season 2012/2013. Because of his good performance, he was called to join the national team.
