Suara.com – Player of Indonesian descent, Jaden Sean Montnor, tried to greet Indonesian football fans through an Instagram account called Half Blood Indonesia.
Montnor is currently defending Cyprus’ top club, Aris Limassol FC, which is ranked first in the 2023/2024 Cypriot League, as reported by the account.
“Hello Indonesia,” said Jaden Sean Montnor as reported by the Half Blood Indonesia account.
Jaden Sean Montnor’s impressive performance with Aris Limassol FC could actually be a blessing for the Indonesian national team.
Remembering that this player from the Netherlands has Indonesian blood from his great-grandfather who came from Medan, North Sumatra.
Unfortunately, despite his ties to Indonesia, Montnor cannot be naturalized any time soon.
This is due to FIFA regulations which require that a player’s transfer of association can only occur if the blood comes from the mother, father, grandfather or grandmother, not from the great-grandmother.
The naturalization process may be permitted by FIFA in the near future if the player was born in Indonesia, or if the mother, father, grandfather or grandmother were also born in Indonesia.
However, Jaden Sean Montnor was born in the Netherlands, not Indonesia.
Apart from that, the naturalization process requires that the player must live at least five years in Indonesia before being naturalized.
Even though his career was going well, the decision to continue his career in Indonesia became difficult considering these conditions.
