HA NOI — Truong Viet Hoang will replace Dylan Kerr as the coach of the V-League side Hai Phong, the club’s Chairman Tran Manh Hung announced.
Hung said that the Maltese-born English coach will end his one-year contract with Hai Phong at the end of this year, and that his club believes in the new young coach Hoang, who is a former national footballer and head coach of the Ha Noi Club.
“Many people are worried that Hoang is young, lacks experience and hasn’t guided any V-League teams. However, I think that it is not a big issue. Under Hoang’s guidance, Hai Phong will prepare well for the new season, especially to win the upcoming National Super Cup on December 27,” Hung said.
“It is the first time that I will be taking Hai Phong to play in the V-League. There will be many difficulties ahead. But I will pass with the support of the club’s leaders and fans. It is my new experience,” 39-year-old Hoang said.
