Indonesian fans requires sacking coach Simon McMenemy after two consecutive defeats

Witnessing the team's disappointing performances in the last two 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches, many Indonesian fans simultaneously asked to sack head coach Simon McMenemy.

The Indonesian team went through two matches in Group G of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying round in Asia without getting any points.

Coach and coach Simon McMenemy, although playing at the Bung Karno stadium, still has no hands in front of two competitors in the same region, Malaysia and Thailand.

In the opening match against Malaysia, the team of Van Dao took the lead twice but were equalized before Sumareh scored the opponent's goal in the 90 + 6 minute to win Malaysia.

Last night against Thailand, Indonesia exposed all the weakness of the game and the connection between the positions, the striker Supachock alone has constantly wrecked the red shirt defense and the score 3 -0 said it.

The frustration of the people of Van Islands also culminated with this feeble defeat, a lot of fans have simultaneously called for the dismissal of coach Simon McMenemy on social networks.

On the Liputantimnas Instagram page, posted photos of coach Simon McMenemy with the words #Simonout, immediately received the support of the fans when they all left the same comment.

In another poll just an hour after losing to Thailand last night, more than 25,638 fans in the country approved the plan to fire the British strategist.

Before the information that the fans demanded his resignation, coach Simon McMenemy did not hesitate to respond extremely strongly:

“Yes, of course, I still qualify to continue my work in Indonesia. Supporters always have their own opinions, but do not represent 250 million people.
This is football, results like this are not surprising. I understand this is a home ground, but we have to face a team with one of the best coaches from Japan.

I am worried about the reputation, and the expectation out there, when the supporters cheer for their own players while they are struggling”, said coach Simon McMenemy.

In the third match, Indonesia will have to march to the stadium of the most evaluated opponent in the group, the UAE, a loss that will make Simon McMenemy's team push themselves out of the race to win the ticket to go on the third qualifying as well as owning a place to attend the 2023 Asian Cup in China.
