Andik: I no longer care about getting called up for Indonesia

After being cast into the international wilderness, Selangor star Andik Vermansah prefers to focus on his club career.

The 23-year-old has been in sizzling form since joining the Red Giants in 2013, but he has not put on the red jersey of Indonesia since he suffered an injury while playing for the Under-23 side in the 2013 SEA Games.

As for his last involvement with the senior team, it dated even further back to a 3-0 defeat to the Netherlands in June 2013.

Although Andik chooses not to discuss about it during an exclusive interview with FourFourTwo Malaysia/Singapore for the May 2015 issue, he does not hide his clear disappointment of missing out on the 2014 AFF Suzuki Cup.

“It was disappointing [not to play in the 2014 AFF Suzuki Cup], but now I no longer care whether or not I get called up for the national team,” he says.

“If they call me up today, I will play, but if they don’t, it is not an issue.

“Right now, I want to concentrate fully on Selangor, who have respected and treated me very well.

“I want to repay Selangor with my 100% effort and win something with them.”
