Earlier, the Indonesian General Secretary of the Football Federation, Mr. Wellington also shared with the media about the rumors that coach Luis Milla reached an agreement to lead the Indonesia national football team.

"We often meet and discuss many things about football, as well as our life off the pitch of each other. He also has good feelings for Indonesia and is confident to lead this team to the next level".
