PSSI Deputy Chairman confirms to appoint Shin Tae Yong next month

The Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI) decided to vote for South Korean manager Shin Tae Yong to become the next head coach of the Indonesia national football team.

According to Cucu Soemantri, the Deputy Chairman, PSSI agreed to choose Shin Tae Yong instead of working with the former coach Luis Milla. Unlike Luis Milla, who could not give any commitment to improve the national team's results, Shin showed that he wanted this job.

Cucu Soemantri also revealed that two sides would meet to sign the official deal in January, but he did not give any details about the length of the contract, or Shin's salary in the Indonesia national football team.

By coaching the Indonesia team, Shin can build a very strong squad to challenge two Southeast Asian giants Vietnam and Thailand. Park Hang Seo's success with the Vietnam team in recent years was the main reason making Shin decide to challenge himself in Indonesia.

Before that, Shin had another offer from the Chinese club Shenzhen FC, which was rejected later. Park himself also advised Shin to find the next workplace that could help him improve his career instead of focusing too much on the salary.

Thanks to the results Shin Tae Yong achieved in the past, he was considered one of the best South Korean football coaches at the moment. Before guiding the South Korea team to compete at the 2018 World Cup, Shin led Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma to conquer AFC Champions League title in 2010.
