In the tweet, the PSSI bade farewell to Edy and thanked the former chief for his contribution to Indonesian soccer.
According to Antara news agency, Edy told the congress that he had failed in running the organization and hoped the PSSI would remain solid.
The PSSI is under fire following match-fixing allegations in the Indonesian soccer league. The National Police’s antimatch-fixing task force has named 11 suspects involved in match-fixing cases connected to second-tier Liga 2 and third-tier Liga 3.
The task force has summoned several PSSI officials for questioning, including deputy chief Joko Driyono and secretary-general Ratu Tisha, over the past week. (nkn)
