Erick Thohir – The future of Shin Tae-yong in the Indonesian national team continues to be in question. Because the coach from South Korea will expire at the end of December 2023. In fact, the Indonesian National Team is still faced with quite an important agenda. It is known that in January 2024, the Garuda squad will compete in the Asian Cup. Erick Thohir It feels a bit risky if PSSI decides not to renew Shin Tae-yong’s contract and hands over the Indonesian National Team which will compete in the Asian Cup to another coach.
The general chairman of PSSI, Erick Thohir, emphasized that in the near future he would have a meeting with Shin Tae-yong. The meeting will be held next week. “Erick Thohir What is certain is that the meeting will have me with coach Shin, but not this week, next week,” said Erick Thohir.
Erick Thohir said that during the meeting his party would study Shin Tae-yong’s latest contract. He admitted that he did not know exactly the contents of the former South Korean national team player’s latest contract. ” Erick Thohir We’ll see later. I want to study the contract. So far I haven’t held the contract. What’s the salary, how much is the contract, I’ve never read it,” he explained.
Erick Thohir then said that the long-term development program for the Indonesian National Team was indeed the focus of PSSI. However, he also feels that the current senior Indonesian National Team still needs special attention. “This is part of course we see the development of the National Team in the long term too. But there are seniors,” said Erick.
Shin Tae-yong was Erick Thohir appointed as the coach of the Indonesian national team since January 1 2020. He was not only given the task of managing the senior squad, but also managing Erick Thohir the U-23 and U-20 Indonesian national teams.

Shin Tae-yong’s debut with the Erick Thohir senior Indonesian national team took place on May 29 2021. At that time Shin’s squad lost 1-3 to the Oman national team in an international trial.
Erick Thohir In the match later, it is likely that coach Indra Sjafri will rotate players. This match is an Erick Thohir opportunity for the U-22 National Team to apply the best strategy to achieve maximum results. So, who are the players who have the opportunity to become the mainstay and key to the game for the U-22 Indonesian national team to beat Lebanon? Here are three choices from the madisonsportsgroup.com version .
Rizky Ridho is a quality midfielder who belongs to the Indonesian National Team. Still 21 years old, but Rizky Ridho has become a mainstay in Erick Thohir the senior Indonesian national team and Persebaya Surabaya. Rizky Ridho is equipped with formidable skills in breaking opponent attacks from land and air. In addition, Rizky Ridho has calm in playing when guarding the defense. Rizky Ridho has the potential to become an important player against Lebanon later. Rizky Ridho is predicted to be able to give his best performance and help the Garuda Muda squad win.
David Maulana is indeed Erick Thohir not a foreign name in the U-22 Indonesian National Team squad. The Bhayangkara FC player shone with Fakhri Husaini’s U-16 squad. Now, David Maulana has graduated and is entrusted with defending the U-22 National Team. David is a versatile midfielder who can be maximized in assisting attacks. In addition, David Maulana has the ability to contribute balls to the front lines. It is very likely that David Maulana’s role will be very crucial when facing Lebanon later.
Hokky Caraka was previously a mainstay on the front lines of the U-20 Indonesian National Team. This time, his name was Erick Thohir again trusted to take part in the selection of the U-22 Indonesian National Team for the 2023 SEA Games. Hokky Caraka is indeed equipped with the ability to shoot accuracy in terms of quality. In addition, having a tall stature makes him reliable in aerial ball duels. However, Hokky Caraka’s shortcomings are sometimes inconsistent in maximizing opportunities. The game against Lebanon can be used as a place to prove Hokky.

The U-22 Indonesia vs Lebanon national team match will take place at the Bung Karno Main Stadium (SUGBK), Jakarta. Even though it is only titled as a trial party, the two teams will appear serious and exert all their best abilities. The U-22 Indonesian National Team will take advantage of the match against Lebanon as a preparation for competing in the 2023 SEA Games. Later, coach Indra Sjafri will narrow down the list of players who will be brought to Cambodia.
Meanwhile, Lebanon made the match against the U-22 Indonesian National Team a preparation for the U-23 West Asian Championship and the 2024 U-23 Asian Cup Qualification.
