Suara.com – The manager and trainer of the Indonesian National Team Shin Tae-yong will be vaccinated against COVID-19. This was revealed by the Minister of Youth and Sports, Zainudin Amali.
According to Amali, his party will propose to the Ministry of Health (Kemenkes) to vaccinate COVID-19 against athletes and sports officials.
Not wanting to differentiate, all parties in the sports will receive vaccines including foreigners such as Shin Tae-yong and his staff.
It is not impossible for the Indonesian national team to be the priority for vaccine recipients because it is overshadowed by a series of agendas for 2021. Moreover, Shin Tae-yong and his assistants are busy because they coach the U-19, U-23 and senior national teams at the same time.
Vaccination for COVID-19 has started since January 13, 2021, in which President Joko Widodo – Jokowi – became the first recipient.
“Because officials like Shin Tae-yong, he is also in the team. We do not differentiate. Not only in football, in swimming and shooting there are also foreign coaches,” said Amali during a virtual press conference, Wednesday (13 / 1/2021).
“We can do that and they certainly understand that need. It is impossible for the players to be vaccinated, not the coaches. We will be together because this is a need. After all, it is only for 1-2 people,” said the minister from Gorontalo.
If nothing changes, Shin Tae-yong will lead the U-19 Indonesian national team at the U-19 Uzbekistan Asian Cup in March 2021.
After that, the South Korean coach will accompany the senior national team in the 2022 Asia Zone World Cup Qualification, where the Garuda squad still has three matches left in Group G.
Each against Thailand on March 25, 2021, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on March 30, 2021, and Vietnam on June 7, 2021.
Meanwhile, the U-23 Indonesian National Team will participate in the 2021 SEA Games in Hanoi, Vietnam, in November.
