The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) have not yet discussed renewing the contract for South Korean Coach Park Hang Seo who has trained the recently successful Vietnamese U23 football squad. The information was given by a representative from the VFF in an interview with Sports and Culture Newspaper. South Korean Coach Park Hang Seo The VFF claimed it was not an appropriate time to discuss Park’s contract as it already runs until 2020. Besides receiving a monthly salary of USD22,000, Park has also got many advertising contracts for companies and a bonus of billions of VND after U23s’ impressive results at ASIAD 18. The achievements are just for U23 and U23+3 football squads, but not the national team, he said, adding that VFF hoped that coach could help Vietnam to make breakthroughs at the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup 2018 and Asian Cup 2019. When signing the contract with VFF in October 2017, Park himself set a goal to bring the Vietnamese national football team to be listed among FIFA’s top 100. He also said he believed the team could win the AFF Suzuki Cup. The coach will return to Vietnam soon from South Korea to scout player form for the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018 slated to take place later this year. The VFF representative said that the federation would consider renewing the contract with Park after VFF Suzuki Cup 2018.
