And So It Goes On
The Normalisation Committee set up by FIFA and mandated to smooth the transition of leadership at the PSSI is being accused of succumbing to the demands of a pro reform faction in breach of FIFA instructions.
To show what a cock up the whole thing is the pro reform have asked the NC to sign a letter overturning sanctions imposed by former PSSI chairman Nurdin Halid on players and coaches involved in the rebel Liga Primer Indonesia and three key members have refused to do so.
One NC member is refusing to quit if it continues to dance to the tune of the rebel PSSI members and not FIFA.
Nothing is ever simple in Indonesia. Instead of just letting the NC get on with their job, and surely both sides are working towards the same goal, people just feel the need to stick their size 9s in, presumably to stake a claim in any future leadership.
