PSSI Responds to Netizens' Requests about Nova Arianto Coaching Indonesia in the 2024 AFF Cup



NOBARTV.CO.ID PSSI responds to netizens' requests. Most netizens hope that PSSI will appoint Nova Arianto as coach of the Indonesian National Team in the 2024 AFF Cup. What does PSSI say about this?

The Indonesian National Team squad has a very busy schedule in 2024. After struggling in the 2023 Asian Cup, they will return to action in several important events.

In the remainder of 2024 alone, there are two events that Marselino Ferdinan et al will participate in. The first is the 2026 World Cup Qualification and the second is the 2024 AFF Cup.

In these two events, PSSI - and many people certainly know which event has more priority. For this matter, the 2026 World Cup Qualification is clearly a higher priority to participate in. Therefore, based on the selection of players, Shin Tae-yong will certainly choose quality players to appear in the World Cup Qualifiers rather than the 2024 AFF Cup. Moreover, the 2024 AFF Cup is not included in the official FIFA calendar so it is very likely that players who appear regularly in the main squad of the Indonesian National Team will not receive a call.

And apparently, netizens themselves also spoke out about this. Never mind the selection of players, netizens also hope that Shin Tae-yong will not take part in the 2024 AFF Cup. According to them, compared to Shin Tae-yong, Nova Arianto is said to be worthy enough to coach the Garuda squad in this event.

There are several factors that make Nova worthy of promotion. First, Nova has been beside Shin Tae-yong for quite a long time as a coach. Therefore, Nova certainly knows a lot about the Garuda squad. Second, Nova was also quite good when he was the coach of the Indonesian U16 National Team in the AFF U16 Cup yesterday.

Even though they couldn't bring Garuda Asia (the nickname of the Indonesian U16 National Team) to become champions, Zahaby Gholy et al's game was considered very good at their age. In fact, in a total of five matches played by the Indonesian U16 National Team, the Garuda squad always scored a lot of goals. In the final match, namely the match for third place against Vietnam, Nova Arianto's team went on a rampage by scoring five goals without reply.

These points are what make netizens want the Garuda squad to be trained by Nova - specifically in the AFF Cup later. This netizen's wish also aims to ensure that Shin can focus on the 2026 World Cup Qualifications. Because as is known, in the third round of the 2026 World Cup Qualifications in Asia zone group C, the Indonesian national team will face strong teams such as Japan, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Bahrain and also China.

Regarding this (netizen request), PSSI responded. Arya Sinulingga as a member of the PSSI Exco responded casually.

"We'll see later. Just relax. "We'll see the process later," said Arya.

"Nova will also be tested in the 2026 World Cup Qualifications. So don't be quick to decide," added Arya.

The following is the schedule for the Indonesian National Team in the 2024 AFF Cup:

24 November 2024
