The Ho Chi Minh City Club confirmed that Chairman Nguyen Huu Thanh will lead the Ho Chi Minh City Club as “part-time head coach”. Meanwhile, coach Tran Minh Chien will take up the post of technical director of the team. This change starts from the 12th round of voting rights. Uncle He of the city team will go to VPF company for registration in the next few days. It is understood that Mr. Thang only led the Ho Chi Minh City club in a few games to wait for a new coach and did not sit in the “hot seat” for a long time.

In fact, this is not a surprising decision by the Ho Chi Minh City club. They have just lost 1-2 to their direct rivals Nam Dinh Club in the relegation round. If the crisis momentum cannot be stopped, HCM City Club is likely to find themselves in an irreversible situation. Therefore, “changing generals midway” is a force majeure.

According to research VTC News, Coach Nguyen Huu Thang is still considering adding personnel when the team’s Jamaican foreign aid has yet to show any advantage. Among the bottom group of teams, the Ho Chi Minh City club has a relatively high-quality interior team.

They also just got Li Ruan’s contract, which expires at the end of this season. The 36-year-old midfielder is no longer playing professionally after leaving Vietnam last year. However, the level of American players is unquestionable. In the short term, the rookie is expected to bring positive changes to the Ho Chi Minh City club alongside veteran players such as Huy Toan, Lam Ti Phong, Ho Tuan Tai and Ngo Hoang Thinh.

In the past, when the team figured out plans to replace head coach Zheng Haicheng, chairman Nguyen Huu Seng also returned to the coaching position. After that, they decided to continue to trust the South Korean strategist.

Round 12, Ho Chi Minh City Club welcomes Peace Club At Tongyi Stadium. This was an extremely difficult game for the teacher and coach Nguyen Huu Thanh, as the visiting team was “hungry” for points after consecutive defeats in the past period.
