The Argentine football legend, widely regarded as one of the best to ever play the game, is scheduled to arrive in Jakarta on June 18, before hopping over to Medan, Surabaya and Makassar on each of the following three days, all on his private jet.
"In Indonesia, Maradona will demonstrate an Argentinian football technique that is called Tango” Eddy Sofyan, the chairman of Badan Sepakbola Rakyat Indonesia (BASRI) told reporters.
“In addition, he will also provide a coaching clinic for thousands of children.
"We deliberately invited Maradona to the outside area of Jakarta. That's the way [in which] we can scout all of the children across Indonesia.
"With the presence of Maradona, we hope it can inspire Indonesian football to be better.
"All of Maradona's activities in Indonesia is more devoted to the children, which in the end is expected to be a motivation for them."
