According to Thomas, Ramai started training at the age of eight and has participated in various tournaments.

In 2014, Ramai Rumakiek became part of SSB Batik which won the Papua Regional Danon Nation Cup.

Thomas sees the figure of Ramai as a footballer who has various advantages.

Dominant with the right foot, Ramai has the ability to execute free kicks well.

In addition, despite only having a height of 165 centimeters, Ramai has an above average aerial duel ability.

“He does have a free-kick technique, from a young age his talent has been seen. Many have a high fighting spirit,” he said.

“Rama’s stature is small but has a high jump, his timing for aerial duels is very good. In the Ramai team he always stands out, has good speed and dribbling,” continued Thomas.

In fact, he has a special nickname for Ramai Rumakiek.

“I call him ‘the mad dog’ because Many never get tired and never give up,” he said.

From SSB Batik, Ramai Rumakiek then entered Persipura U-16 and U-18. Only in the 2021 season, he entered the Persipura senior team under the tutelage of Jacksen F Tiago.

Thomas also praised Ramai Rumakiek’s soaring performance in the Indonesian national team, only he also reminded Rama that this was just the beginning of his professional career so it was still too soon to be complacent.

“I feel proud because my hard work has not been in vain. But don’t be complacent, this is just the beginning of a career. If you want to go further, seriously, don’t be complacent because it will sink and it’s not a fairy tale that has happened a lot, you have to be low heart, keep discipline,” said Thomas.

Hard brat

In the eyes of the family, the figure of Ramai Rumakiek turned out to be a naughty child and often stubborn when he had a desire.

Since childhood, Ramai, who is the youngest child of Hans Rumakiek and Faradiba, lived in the house of his grandparents, the late David Rumakiek and Afra Fattie.

For his grandmother, since childhood, Ramai’s life was never far from football, so his character was brought into the playing field.

“Many are a bit stubborn, hard, if he wants something he chases right. Many are stubborn, so impressed hard,” said Afra.

“Every day video calls to his house, asking how he is and what stories he is going through,” he said.
