ACEHFOOTBALL.net – PSSI Chairman Mochamad Iriawan said that the physical fitness of the national team players who participated in the training camp (TC) in preparation for the SEA Games 2021 plummeted to zero.
“Their physique plummeted because there was no competition,” said Iriawan at Gelora Bung Karno, Jakarta, Wednesday.
According to the man who is familiarly called Iwan Bule, The player's fitness made it difficult for Shin to provide training in the early days of TC.
Iriawan continued, that's what made the South Korean coach focus on improving the fitness of the players.
Iriawan wants Shin to provide the same training menu as the U-19 national team to the squad for the SEA Games 2021 that.
Shin is considered to have succeeded in forming a formidable U-19 national team in less than a year with a series of strenuous physical exercises, techniques and tactics.
“Shin focused on improving his physique, mental and disciplined. Tactics and strategies will follow. I ask them to be trained like the U-19 national team because the target of this squad is the 2021 SEA Games gold medal,” said Iriawan.
Shin Tae-yong did not deny that his players were physically bad even though they had trained independently in the midst of the vacuum of competition.
The national team players have not played since March 2020. “Honest, It is very difficult for players if the league does not roll for one year even if they train personally. They need to increase physical exercise to stay strong,” kata Shin.
The Indonesian national team is currently undergoing TC preparation for the SEA Games 2021 in Jakarta on 8-28 February 2021.
This Wednesday the practice starts at around 8pm 16.00 WIB and lasts for two hours.
SEA Games 2021 will be held November-December in Vietnam. PSSI is aiming for a gold medal to repeat a similar achievement on 1991.
