Jakarta. The Indonesian Football Association, or PSSI, has appointed a new head coach for the national futsal team — Victor Hermans of the Netherlands.
Hermans previously coached several Asian teams, including Thailand and Iran. He also led the coaching staff of Malaysia's and Hong Kong's national teams.
The 63-year-old has signed a one-year contract with Indonesia's Futsal Federation (FFI), a sub-organization of the PSSI.
Hermans will oversee the national team during the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U20 Futsal Championship in May, Southeast Asian Games in August and Asean Football Federation (AFF) Futsal Championship in November.
"I saw during the 2016 AFF Futsal Championship that Indonesia has many talented players, but there are numerous things that should be fixed," Hermans said.
Indonesia's futsal team fell short at the recent AFF Futsal Championship, marking its worst performance since 2007.
