Shin Tae-yong, coach of the Indonesian national team, was publicly shot by a foreign coach.
Thomas Dole, coach of Persiza Jakarta, the second-place team in the Indonesian professional football division 1, recently expressed dissatisfaction with coach Shin Tae-yong. It was the reason that too many players from Jakarta were selected when convening the national team entry.
Shin coaches not only the Indonesian national team, but also the U-23 and U-20 national teams. Indonesia is the host of the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup. As coach of the U-20 World Cup host country, head coach Shin Tae-yong planned to recruit the best players. So, 9 Jakarta players were called to the U-20 national team.
The conflict between coach Shin, who leads the national team, and coach Dol, who leads the professional team, has increased. The Indonesian Football Association held a video conference to mediate the two. However, director Shin did not attend the video conference.
Later, director Dole criticized director Shin Tae-yong using harsh expressions. He said, “Director Shin Tae-yong is a very light-hearted person. Look at the TV commercials. It’s like looking at a clown. Which country’s national team coach shoots such a light commercial? The national team coach must be serious and polite,” he insisted.
It was definitely a statement that crossed the line. Dol, who attacked coach Shin Tae-yong for an issue outside of football, was hit by public opinion. In the end, director Dole apologized. He said, “It was my fault to criticize director Shin Tae-yong for personal reasons. I’m sorry.” He lowered his tail.
Director Shin said in a recent Naver column, “Of course, I understand the circumstances of each club team. I am in charge of the three teams (national team, U-23, U-20) and have different convocations, so there are times when I am misunderstood by front-line leaders saying, ‘Why are you calling so many?’” he briefly mentioned. 카지노
Meanwhile, coach Dole is a German coach born in 1966. During his career, he played as an attacking midfielder for the German national football team, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Lazio, Italy. After his retirement, he coached Hamburg Youth Team, Dortmund, Al Hilal, Hannover and APOEL, and from 2022 he took the helm of Jakarta, an Indonesian professional team.
