President of Vietnam Football Federation, Nguyen Trong Hy, said that the Federation will not look for a foreign coach for the National Football Team.
Mr. Hy made the statement on April 17th, denouncing rumours that the Federation would find a foreign coach if it cannot recruit a Vietnamese one.
“Looking for a domestic coach is the only decision agreed by VFF,” said Mr. Hy.
“If VFF functional departments step up their efforts, the name of the coach for the National Football Team will be announced this April,” he added.
He also revealed that the two friendly matches of the national football team in June this year will be the test for the new coach.
The Vietnam national football team has not had a coach since late last year when German coach, Falco Goetz, was fired.
