The employment contract signed between the head coach of the Vietnamese national football team Park Hang and VFF has a special clause that prolongs the cooperation between the Korean coach with Vietnamese football.

On November 7, 2019, the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) and Coach Park Hang Seo extended the contract for two years. The Korean coach receives a monthly salary of $50,000.
The special provision is that the contract will automatically be extended for one more year if both parties agree. Mr. Park’s 2-year contract is about to end in 10 months.
According to VFF Secretary General Le Hoai Anh, three months before the end of the contract, the two sides will sit down to discuss the future. If they agree to continue their cooperation, the contract will immediately be valid and they will not need to negotiate and sign a new one. The salary of the Korean coach will remain unchanged next year.
In case the two sides cannot find a common voice for some reason, they will say goodbye to each other. Both the insiders and fans do not expect this scenario to happen, because Mr. Park has helped Vietnamese football win many victories, and the Korean coach has gained a lot from working in Vietnam.
Go beyond employment contract
This year coach Park has been assigned a lot of important tasks by VFF, including taking Vietnam to the final qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup in Asia, winning a card to the final of the Asia U23 championship, and defending the championship title at SEA Games and the AFF Cup.
Mr. Park understands the expectations of VFF and Vietnamese fans. Over the past year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, activities of the Vietnamese teams were almost “frozen”, but the Korean coach was still paid by the VFF.
“I understand the pressure and am aware of my responsibility. It is not easy to meet the Vietnamese fans’ expectations. But I will try to bring into play all the resources and allocate the time properly to achieve the set target,” said Mr. Park.
Vietnamese football needs Mr. Park, and vice versa
The VFF is very confident that Coach Park Hang Seo will continue to stick with Vietnamese football, even for a long time to come. A VFF official said: “Mr. Park is doing his job very well, and we think there is no reason for Coach Park Hang Seo to refuse to renew the contract.”
The VFF needs Mr. Park and vice versa. In addition to professional issues, Coach Park Hang Seo also plays a role as a link between Vietnam and Korea in many fields. He has helped raise the image of the two countries and create pride among the public, so the relationship between VFF and Mr. Park will last long.
Park Hang-seo completed his 14-day quarantine on Thursday after returning to Vietnam from a holiday in his native South Korea, and is itching to get back to work with the national team.
