Coach Chung Hae-seong stuck in Vietnam
Coach Chung Hae Seong is still in Vietnam despite officially breaking up with the HCMC club.
Recently after stepping down as Ho Chi Minh City coach, coach Chung Hae-seong had a meeting with the executive board to resolve the contract-related procedures. He also attended the party with the presence of acquaintances in Vietnam such as players and associates of the two teams of Ho Chi Minh City and HAGL.
However, at this time, the Korean military commander and his colleagues could not return home due to the Covid-19 epidemic. Flights between Vietnam and Korea have not been able to resume when the epidemic is getting complicated. It is most likely he had to wait until the control of pandemic.
As previously informed, despite the farewell in Ho Chi Minh City, the Ho Chi Minh city FC team wanted Mr. Chung to take the position of the director of technical director. However, he refused with the reason, "Previously I used to be the director of technical management at HAGL, so I know this position in Vietnam is still unclear.
However, I am a professional footballer, between the coach and the technical director are two different roles, not to be confused. I know maybe the change of position in the team at this time is just to bring a new breeze, but if I am the director, Mr. Huu Thang is the head coach, who will the players listen to? The situation is very bad for the club".
In Ho Chi Minh City, Coach Chung Hae-seong has many Korean friends. Many of them assisted the club in providing meals or accommodation for the team before each round.
