Whether it’s a textbook tackle or a tackle ‘below the belt’, the right fullback from the Indonesian Football Club ‘Sriwijaya FC’ does not take half measures. Besides guarding the flanks for his club, Diego Michiels also does what he does best for the Indonesian national team: being the opponents’ strikers’ worst nightmare.

“You always have to respect your opponent, but they have to respect me even more, always.”

Diego Muhammad bin Robbie Michiels, or Diego Michiels was born on the 8th of August 1990 in Deventer, the Netherlands. He first touched the ball when he was three years old and little Diego found his lifetime passion: football.

Diego’s transfer to Sriwijaya FC and his status as international are a dream come true. Still, Diego keeps on dreaming as he wants to aim high with his club and country. His ambition is to conquer the first national title for his club since 2007 and to win cup of Indonesia.

“Before Kalonda contacted me, I didn’t knew there was such a brand that has passion, ambition and dreams as their core values. For me personally? I find that very appealing.”
