Indonesia's Next Coach

With Jacksen F Tiago set to step down as coach of the Indonesian national team, a job he has done while guiding Persipura to their third ISL title in three years, the rumour mill is churning out the usual names.

One paper is suggesting Alfred Riedl. Again. He had it before, taking the merah putih to the final of the ASEAN Cup in 2010, before becoming a victim of the dualisme nonsense that has wasted so many people's time over the last two years.

The PSSI who took over after Nurdin Halid had to move aside couldn't find the Austrian's contract so they sacked him!

Ivan Kolev is also being mentioned. He has had the job twice before.

One other name being mentioned is former Aston Villa striker Peter Withe who  has also had the job before.

No mention, yet, of names like Bambang Nurdiansyah, Benny Dollo, Wim Rijsbergen, Luis Manuel Blanco (who?), Nil Maizer, Aji Santoso and Rahmad Darmawan who have all had a go in recent years?
