To quit or not to quit – that is the question facing Indonesian head coach Alfred Riedl as he look to guide the team to their first final of the AFF Suzuki Cup since 2010.
Indonesia will take on Vietnam in the first-leg, semi-finals of the AFF Suzuki Cup at the Pakansari Stadium where they will be looking to score a positive result to carry to the return tie in Hanoi in a few days time.
“Yes, it is true that I had already tendered my resignation earlier but the new PSSI brought me back for this current stint for a short seven months contract. And it has been a tremendous gesture for me,” said Riedl.
“I was already thinking about quitting several times as the end of the day, I realised that I am already 67-years-old, so I should take it easy.”
Riedl said that should he decided to call it quits, the Indonesian national side is in the best condition at the moment with a good coaching staff led by Wolfgang Pikal and also Peter Sjhallal.
“I had said earlier that whatever happens (at the AFF Suzuki Cup), I will quit, but then again football is strange. You never know what is going to happen,” he added.
