Nil's Home Comforts

Indonesia's current national team coach is a rarity indeed. For many involved in football it is normal to move from place to place, which here often means island to island. It is not unheard of for players to have spells with clubs in Java, Papua, Sumatra or Kalimantan in a short period of time.

Apart from a six month spell with Sparta Prague in 1990 Nil Maizar has spent practically his whole professional career in is home province of West Sumatra.

He was born there, played for Semen Padang for five years, two years with PS Padang before moving into coaching with Semen Padang, going through the ranks beginning in 2000 before becoming national team coach this year meaning his office would, for the first time, be in Jakarta.

Wonder if he commutes from Padang?
