Ardes’ request was uploaded through his Instagram account. He also said he didn’t mean to demean Shin Tae-yong’s foster children.
“I apologize if some of my friends feel hurt because of my comments regarding football, especially regarding the Indonesian National Football Team,” Ardes wrote on his Instagram story, Monday (27/12). Berita Olahraga
“I’m just trying to express my opinion that from an objective perspective, it must be recognized that Thailand and Vietnam are superior to Indonesia. There is no intention to demean the struggle of the coach, staff and national team players,” he added.
Previously, Ardes had expressed a controversial opinion. According to him, Evan Dimas and colleagues were too excessive in celebrating their qualification to the 2020 AFF Cup final.
Ardes’ remarks provoked several people to comment. The former Indonesian national team player, Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto, said it was normal for the national team to celebrate the success of advancing to the final round.
“Celebrating this [passing to the final] is fine, because it is a success. The most important thing is that the euphoria is not continuous, meaning that after the night you have to focus again, concentrate again, because it is not the last match,” said Kurniawan when contacted by the coil, Monday (27/12).

Ardes’s upload also prompted Emtek to raise their voice. Moreover, Ardes is suspected of being a presenter who often adorns the SCTV or Indosiar screens. However, Emtek denied this.
“The person concerned is not a presenter of SCTV or Indosiar. He is only an occasional host of a regular three-minute sponsor quiz show on SCTV or Indosiar,” said Director of Surya Citra Media, Harsiwi Achmad.
In addition, several public figures also expressed their disappointment with Ardes’ upload, including Darius Synatria, Arie Kriting, and Adit Insomnia. They considered that Ardes could not appreciate the struggle of Evan Dimas and his colleagues who were on the field. Politik Eropa dan Prusia
