Coach Chung Hae-seong officially returns as head coach of Ho Chi Minh City FC
After the morning meeting on August 11, Mr. Chung Hae-seong agreed to return to the position of head coach at the HCM City club.
At 9:30 a.m. on August 11, Chung Hae-seong and the leaders of the Ho Chi Minh City Club met at the club headquarters to agree on a number of new terms. Accordingly, the Korean coach will return as head coach from Aug 12.
Coach Chung Hae-seong resigned after losing to Hanoi FC in round 11 of the V-League. The HCM City club side has also selected a new coach, Mr. Ailton Silva, the Brazilian coach.
However, this strategist was unable to come to Vietnam due to the effects of the epidemic.
Besides, President as well as acting coach Nguyen Huu Thang does not want to accept the responsibility of leading the team with the championship goal. So the HCMC club decided to invite coach Chung Hae-seong to come back and he accepted.
The Korean coach returning to the captain's seat is good news for many of his players at the HCMC club. Before that, Cong Phuong and many teammates expressed their feelings when their coach resigned. This return will help the team to be more stable in the second phase with the ambition to win the V-League 2020.
The Ho Chi Minh City Club also launched two Costa Rican strikers, Ariel Rodriguez and Jose Ortiz, with a transfer fee of up to $ 1 million. This is a very daring decision of the HCMC club, in the context that the V-League is still paused due to the impact of the epidemic, many teams even proposed to cancel the award and give the championship to the Saigon Club.
