Former coach Park Hang-seo (64) seems to have raised the level of the Vietnam Football Association too much, to the point of wondering what to do with the coach to come in the future.
Vietnamese media Dan Viet said on the 21st (Korean time), “The successor of former coach Park Hang-seo has received a terrible task from the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF).”
On the 16th, former coach Park lost to Thailand 2-3 on aggregate at the 2022 Southeast Asian Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup, staying as runner-up, and ending about 5 years of companionship with Vietnam, which began in September 2017. He agreed not to renew his contract before the tournament, and it was reported that his contract officially ended on January 31st.
His successor was Philip Troussier (68), who was famous as the Japanese national soccer team’s former coach, and is now Vietnam’s U-18 team coach. However, it seems that the burden of his grades will not be light.
“According to one of the VFF’s senior officials,온라인바카라 the coach who will replace former coach Park must be a coach of sufficient quality to lead Vietnam to the World Cup,” said Dan Viet. It is necessary to advance into,” he said.
What is embarrassing for coach Trudeau is that Vietnam has never made it to the final FIFA World Cup qualifiers before former coach Park arrived.
Former coach Park left a big footprint while taking charge of the Vietnam U-23 and adult national team for the past five years. Even if it’s bold, he achieved 4th place in the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, 2018 AFF Cup victory, 2019 Asian Football Federation (AFC) Asian Cup quarterfinals, 2022 AFF Cup runner-up.
His biggest achievement was reaching the final qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, leaving hopes for the World Cup. It was included in Group B of the final qualifier against strong teams such as Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Australia, and was in last place with 1 win, 1 draw and 8 losses in 10 matches, but the first victory (3-1) against China and the first victory point with a 1-1 draw against Japan He made miracles, such as winning.
From the Vietnamese point of view, it was natural to expect the next one. Coach Troussier was considered the right person familiar with Vietnamese football as he took charge of the U-18 national team from 2019.
Dan Viet said, “Based on his knowledge of Vietnamese football, Troussier is expected to continue the success of former coach Park. I also have the experience of leading,” he explained.
