Shin Tae-yong failed to realize the gold medal target for the U-23 Indonesian National Team at the 2021 Vietnam SEA Games. Garuda Muda only won a bronze medal at the biennial multievent.
The achievement of the national team in the biennial multievent has even declined. Because in the previous edition, namely at the 2019 Philippine SEA Games, Garuda Muda was able to secure a silver medal.
Whereas PSSI has provided classy facilities for the preparation of the SEA Games by sending the U-23 National Team to conduct a training camp (TC) to South Korea on April 15-27. Where the TC became history, because for the first time PSSI was trying to prepare for the SEA Games according to Shin Tae-yong’s wishes.
The failure of the national team at the SEA Games was also the second for Shin Tae-yong. Previously, the South Korean coach also failed to bring Indonesia to win the 2020 AFF Cup.
Indonesia only became runner-up in the 2020 AFF Cup after being defeated by Thailand. The defeat that made the TC National Team held in Turkey in November-December 2021 also seemed in vain.
If you look at Shin Tae-yong’s achievements, which have not been maximized, even with great support from PSSI, the public has begun to compare the coach, who is paid Rp. 1.1 billion per month, with the previous national team coach.
What’s more, implementing TC costs up to tens of billions. Meanwhile, the achievements achieved are still far from expectations.
