Mac Hong Quan is suitable for the center forward position, says former coach Mai Duc Chung
Mai Duc Chung believes that Than Quang Ninh FC midfielder Mac Hong Quan will help solve the problem of the men’s team’s center forward position.
The national squad is preparing for the World Cup 2022 qualifier against Malaysia on October 10.
Chung’s comment followed coach Park Hang-seo’s decision to give attacking midfielder Mac Hong Quan the center forward position as key forward Anh Duc has not yet recovered from a back injury.
“Quan played as a forward in several clubs. Two years ago, I called up him to the national team to play as a forward. He scored in the 5-0 win over Cambodia,” said Chung.
“He has no longer been distracted by private affairs and now performs well in the V-League, especially with Than Quang Ninh FC. It is good to see him in the call-up again,” Chung added.
Mac Hong Quan enjoyed a successful season with Than Quang Ninh which finished third in the V-League this year. The 27-year-old capped 22 times and scored 8 goals.
“Mac Hong Quan will be a good choice. He is tall, experienced, and well-trained overseas,” said Chung, who is now the head coach the national women’s team.
