'It was reported to FIFA about the conditions in Indonesia. The results of that FIFA will probably ask to PSSI, yes still about basic salary and the dismissal letter, "explained Faith.
Meanwhile, Riedl assistant, Wolfgang Pikal still reluctant to provide comments related to this issue. "Sorry can not talk now, next week I can talk (from August 10, 2011)," says Pikal via text messaging.
Riedl was sacked by the leadership PSSI Djohar Arifin on July 13, 2011. According to Djohar, the dismissal is for a refresher in the national team.
"It has been replaced managers and coaches are no longer Riedl. So we do not use Riedl. This is just for a refresher course," said Djohar at the time. The Riedl position was replaced Wim Rijbergen.
PSSI had argued Riedl dismissal because agreement not with the PSSI as an organization but by the individual. PSSI attitude then changed and then be willing to negotiate to discuss the issue of compensation. Unfortunately, no agreement obtained.
