Suara.com – The impressive achievement that was successfully recorded by the U-16 Indonesian National Team by winning the 2022 AFF U-16 Cup could be threatened because of a number of things that damaged the careers of the players.
The reason is that the U-16 Indonesian National Team actually has to undergo a number of agendas and activities that are less relevant to improving the performance of the players after the U-16 AFF Cup.
After successfully winning the final match of the 2022 AFF U-16 Cup, it turns out that the U-16 national team squad has not yet been ‘disbanded’ to return to their respective regions of origin.
There are a series of agendas from the PSSI that must be followed by the Bima Sakti team. In fact, the players had to go from Yogyakarta to Jakarta to follow these agendas.

A number of these agendas received sharp attention from the public because it was feared that they could damage the careers of these young players.
This is because these various agendas do not have a positive impact on the technical aspects of the players, and it is feared that they could interfere with M Iqbal Gwijangge and his friends.
Here are three things that can damage the careers of the Indonesian U-16 national team players after winning the 2022 AFF U-16 Cup:
1. Attend Non-Important Events
One of the unimportant events that must be attended by Indonesian U-16 national team players is being a guest at a dangdut concert held by one of the national television channels, Indosiar.

Together with the PSSI General Chair, Mochamad Iriawan, the Indonesian U-16 national team players had to take part in the Indonesian 17’s Concert dangdut event which had absolutely nothing to do with football.
In fact, in the morning, the players and coaching staff of the Indonesia U-16 national team had just fulfilled the invitation of President Joko Widodo at the commemoration ceremony of the 77th Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia at the State Palace.
Since winning the 2022 AFF U-16 Cup, the U-16 Indonesian national team has indeed received excessive exposure from the Indonesian football federation, aka PSSI.
In fact, the agenda for the 2022 AFF U-16 Cup has been completed and the players should have the opportunity to return to training with their respective clubs.
However, because of this excessive exposure, the Indonesian U-16 national team players are feared to be exploited for certain interests.
3. Symptoms of Star Syndrome
One of the most important messages from the coach of the Indonesia U-16 national team, Bima Sakti, to his players is to remain humble and not arrogant even though they have successfully won the 2022 AFF U-16 Cup.
Internally the team, Bima Sakti also did not want to celebrate too much. However, a number of unimportant agendas followed by the Indonesian U-16 national team actually interfered with the important message given by the Milky Way.
This is because the players are very prone to star-syndrome because they are still very young and have not been able to respond wisely to external fluctuations.
By over-exposure and following such an unimportant agenda, the U-16 national team players can experience star-syndrome and their careers will wither before they develop.
