Like Brazilian soccer stat Ronaldinho, the Jakarta Bintangs Australian Rules midfielder only needs one name.
Lukman stands at just 170cm, but let him loose on a wing at any amateur footy ground around Adelaide this winter and his speed would be certain to cause the opposition headaches
“I am small compared to some of the other players, so I have to learn to run very fast,” he says.
Lukman is rated as one of the best players in Indonesia and has toured Singapore among other places with the Bintangs.
He is expected to win a place in the Indonesia Guradas line-up for the this year’s International Cup.
Exposed to Aussie Rules as 17-year-old, Lukman has now been playing four years and attended an AFL conference in Adelaide this week.
A North Melbourne supporter, Lukman is one of a small but growing band of Indonesian youngsters who has been exposed to Australian Rules in recent years and loves the game.
“It is a very fast game, and I love the bumping and the running,” he says.
