In an official statement received by reporters, Lingard stated that he was very enthusiastic about the opportunity to visit Indonesia, and hopes to build close relationships and have a positive impact on the world of Indonesian football.
Previously, clothing company Concave had also brought former Germany national team player Mesut Ozil to Indonesia in May last year.
Both Ozil and Lingard are known to be quite active in their roles at the apparel company, that is, they are not only sponsors but also often design a number of products.
The mid-year period is often used by a number of parties in Indonesia to bring in star players or national teams from abroad. This is of course due to the regular competition that these players take part in while on holiday.
A few days ago PSSI Chairman Erick Thohir brought in four world legendary players, namely Roberto Carlos, Marco Materazzi, Juan Sebastian Veron and Eric Abidal to fill in at the event in Jakarta.
