Former Indonesian footballer Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto has qualified as a candidate for chairman of the Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI) for the period 2016-2020, according to official sources.
At a debate featuring PSSI chairman candidates held on October 4, Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto has promised to develop youth football, without any age fraud.
“Honestly, I want to become PSSI chairman because I have experience as a player. I think we need to build our football teams from junior to senior levels, without any age fraud”, the former PSM Makassar and Persija Jakarta striker said.
“Usually, people who work in youth football are focusing on the result and not the process, and that’s something I’ll have to change. At the professional level, we’ll have to follow the rule, so everything can run smoothly”, Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto told the audience.
Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto will compete against other candidates, including Moeldoko, Djohar Arifin Husin, Tonny Aprilani, Eddy Rumpoko and Sarman El Hakim for the PSSI chairman role.
