'Easy' For Schaller To Accept Bali United Job

With Indra Sjafri taking over the national Under 19 team it not many people felt Bali United would be coach-less for long. It's Bali for goodness sake, No doubt the postman struggled under the weight of the applications that headed to the Isle of the Gods when it was learnt Indra had been headhunted by his former employer,

Interestingly it wasn't a job hunt carried out in the sports pages so whoever got the job would have had the element of surprise.

And the job has gone to...Hans Peter Schaller. Last seen assisting his compatriot Alfred Riedl with the national team at the AFF Suzuki Cup, Schaller is no stranger to the Indonesian leagues having worked with Persiba a few years back.

Working as a football coach on Bali? What kind of job is that? Schaller has no doubts. He says Bali United are like no other team he has worked with saying the club is being set upon along the lines of a European club. 'Bali United are different,' he says. 'It was easy for me to accept the job offer.'

He will watch his new team take on Sriwijaya later today in the President Cup.
