Indonesia want Riedl

Alfred Riedl is no stranger to South East Asia. The Austrian coach has spent much of the last 10/12 years coaching the Vietnam national squad and helped lay the groundwork for their 2008 AFF Cup success.

Last December he guided hosts Lao to respectablity in the SEA Games and now he has spend the last couple of days in Jakarta being interviewd by the FA about the vacant position of Under 23 coach.

If he is appointed he will be kept busy. Coming up later this year, possibly are the Asian Games in China (no guarantee Indonesia will send a team) while Indonesia will host the SEA Games in 2011 and 2012 Olympic Games qualification.

Then full team will also be coachless when Benny Dollo's contract ends at the end of this month though there has been talk he may still take charge of the final, irrelevant, Asian Cup qualifier against Australia in Brisbane.
