Andik Vermansyah is an Indonesian footballer, who currently plays for Indonesian Liga 1 club Madura United and the Indonesia national team. Similarly, he is one of ten Asian players to watch in 2012 by ESPN Soccernet.
Andik was born in Jember, East Java, to Saman, a coolie, and Jumiah, a tailor, both indigenous Javanese. Moreover, he spent his childhood selling ice as a means of earning money for his family. Further, his parents, earning barely enough money for living expenditures, had a little fund to help Andik realize his dream as a footballer. At first, Andik was not allowed to pursue his footballing career due to his family’s economic condition.
However, a strongly motivated Andik did not give up on his dream of becoming a professional footballer. Similarly, he did everything he could to pursue his dream by all means and to fund his burgeoning career he had to sell cake and ice, even playing football for the inter-village tournament, just to be able to buy a pair of football shoes. Andik received his big break when the coach of SSB Suryanaga, Rudi, discovered his talents. Rudi offered Andik to play at a football academy in Jember, free of charge.
Andik started his career with Persebaya (1927) U-18. With Persebaya (1927) U-18, Andik won the East Java Regional Youth League in 2007. And in that year, Andik presented gold medals to the city of Surabaya in the Provincial Sports Week.
In 2008, Andik had a big role in bringing home the gold medal for East Java at National Sports Week, which was held in Kalimantan.
