Bima Sakti: Pays Attention to the players welfare for the National Football Achievement
Jakarta, dpd.go.id - The slump of the national soccer accomplishments was connected to the conflict of poor managerial stewardship of both football clubs and national football federation (PSSI) has made the fate of the national players go dormant. According to Bima Sakti from the APPI (Association of Professional Players Indonesia), today he and many other players have not been paid as a professional player for four months. These conditions would hinder the player to be able to focus on playing well. In the Dialog State with the theme “the Responsibility of the State in developing the national football,” Wednesday (27/06/2012) at the Coffee Corner DPD RI, Bima added, not only the suspended salary, but the nutrition for players is also rarely noticed.
Government through the Ministry of Youth and Sports (Kemenpora) does have a budget for football, but the numbers are still not sufficient to meet the needs of the football coaching to the fullest. Faishal Abdullah (Menpora Special staff) reveals there are at least three fundamental issues in coaching football in Indonesia, namely the lack of talent search efforts of potential players, the lack of financial support, and the lack of commitment to both football clubs and players to play a role in developing the national football. “There are so many good players, but if they are not professionally trained and supported with international-standard facilities, therefore the good talent is not enough, there is a need for good managerial support,” said Faishal.
Meanwhile, former national team coach in the ’80s, Sinyo Aliando, revealed, the re is a need for a willingness to nurture players from a young age. However, it is much hampered because many areas are not able to finance the operational practice. “Many Regions wish to conduct training, and trained by a good coach, but they do not have sufficient funds and adequate facilities,” said Sinyo. On the other hand, Sinyo also regretted the dualism between the ISL (Indonesia Super League) and IPL (Indonesian Premier League) which disrupt the national soccer condition.
About coaching the players, Bima Sakti proposed that the local governments conduct a program of sending at least one the best players in each region to international clubs in Europe or anywhere. According to Bima, it will able to form mental skills and more professional players. “My experience when practicing in Sweden, all was done very seriously. We even bleed in the training course. While in Indonesia, the national team level is still make a lot of jokes during practice, as a result they will have low mentality when playing with strong teams in mentally and ability, “said this Arema Malang Player.
