Luckily, Nathan Tjoe-A-On was able to defend the Indonesian national team, thus increasing Shin Tae-yong’s options to fill Asnawi and Shayne’s position.

“That’s what I always say repeatedly, why we need 150 players in the Indonesian national team,” said Erick.

“When, for example, Pattynama and Asnawi don’t play, the cover is thin. That leaves Pratama Arhan, maybe Sandy Walsh,” he said.

“Luckily, Nathan Tjoe-A-On (was able to play). So, his (lining) is thin. Even at senior level, we have to have 24 players of the same standard,” said Erick.

“For Nathan, yesterday with the process that was carried out, hopefully on March 21 (March) we will ensure that the KTP and Passport have been issued,” said Erick Thohir.

“These players have a short time, they even come 24 hours just to take the oath and process the oaths,” he said.

“I come back again, if we only work monotonously, that’s not good. We want a breakthrough and acceleration,” added Erick Thohir. (Bagas Reza Murti)
