Football Association of Indonesia ( PSSI ) were tidying to clear Indonesian national team . Not only the senior level, coaching youth were encouraged to be more outstanding. Heavy duty was imposed on Indra Sjafri, who is now entrusted with the U- 19 national team .
Despite never once tasted the sweetness of pride as a national team player, Indra Sjafri is able to make the nation’s best talents to spend his best.
Two age group championships , The HKFA ( Hong Kong Football Association ) International Youth Invitational Tournament U – 17 and The HKFA U – 19, a testament to the vision of Indra Sjafri for this nation is on the right track.
Indra Sjafri entered the circle of PSSI in 2007 as an instructor trainer . Contract was signed for a new national team coach in 2011 until now.
But no one knows if all of the nicks were obtained because of hurt. All started when a young Sjafri Indra in the Pre PON squad of West Sumatra in 1985.
At that time, his heart revolted at the number of players who have the ability of individuals above the average but hard to find a place to defend Indonesia in the international arena.
Therefore , Indra Sjafri decided to focus as a coach after retiring as Postmaster in a city in West Sumatra. At that time , he was contemporary with Rudy William Keltjes, former national team players of the 80′s and successful coach dedicated the first gold medal for East Kalimantan in PON 2012.
Having graduated from A licensed coach, Indra Sjafri began guerrilla to remote areas. Support of the family became an important provision in Indra’s coaching career so far.
No less than 43 areas have been visited in order to find the best seeds for Indonesia. According to Indra, the risk is the minimum time for family. Since handled the U – 19 national team, he admitted that he could only gather together 1-2 days. The rest, he did the communications through technological devices.
Indra Sjafri admitted that he struggled to find the seeds of the best players to Muara Teweh , a small town that has now entered the province of North Borneo.
The areas of activity in the entire country, it was indeed so 3 mission. In addition to direct selection of players in the area that have escaped the radar talent scouting PSSI, also to excite football coaching courses and transmit coaching courses which Indra Sjafri obtained to make the perception of coaching.
As a result, U – 19 national team getting AFF Cup 2013 and AFC Cup qualifier, a true representation of Indonesia. Almost all of the area is here. One of them is Yabes Malavani, one of the three boy from Alor still survive.
Alluded to the heavy duty when it is done, Indra Sjafri revealed until PSSI no longer put up with ‘ his actions ‘. The principle is actually done when handling a team .
Grateful to the changes in the PSSI Body
Indra Sjafri’s principle holds Indonesian national team is not really big. Even he was given the early task in the AFC Cup in 2010, he was upset because it was presented with the name of the player without any authority to search. The result failed because only ranked third after losing to Australia .
Therefore , Indra Sjafri is still willing to spend personal expenses while in the dark days in which the salary for 7 months would not go in search of potential liquid only the best from all over the province. Now with reconciliation happens, he hopes all stakeholders in football can unite again.
That is evidenced by the success that willingly seek and continue to seek the potential players, so worthy of the status of Garuda Muda forces.
