The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) focused on the achievements of coach Park Hang-seo (65) in Vietnam.
Coach Park Hang-seo finished his accompaniment with Vietnam by giving Thailand the championship cup in the final of the 2022 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup (Mitsubishi Cup), which ended on the 16th.온라인카지노
Coach Park Hang-seo, who took office in 2017, led Vietnam to the semifinals of the Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games in 2018 and the Mitsubishi Cup victory. In addition, good results were added, such as reaching the quarterfinals of the 2019 Asian Cup and the final qualifying round for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Although he did not win the championship trophy in his last competition as a coach, Vietnamese fans applauded Park Hang-seo with a warm farewell. In the first match against Mitsubishi Cup Thailand, a fan said, ‘Thank you, sir. I visited the stadium holding a banner with a Korean writing on it, ‘A journey of five years’. Another fan was holding a ‘mini statue’ of director Park Hang-seo in his hand.
Even ahead of the Thailand expedition in the second game, Vietnamese fans gave strength to coach Park Hang-seo, who was ahead of the ‘last stage’. About 3,000 Vietnamese fans gathered in Thailand to support coach Park Hang-seo and Vietnam.
Director Park Hang-seo also thanked the fans. He said at a non-face-to-face press conference on the 17th, “I know very well that you have supported and encouraged me a lot. He felt proud of being a Korean and worked hard despite his shortcomings in Vietnam. I would like to thank the Vietnamese national soccer team and the soccer fans who have supported me a lot over the past five years.”
AFC also praised Park Hang-seo’s achievements in Vietnam. On the 23rd (local time), director Park Hang-seo was highlighted through the homepage. He described what he achieved in Vietnam as an ‘eternal legacy’.
“The Korean tactician has raised the level of Vietnamese football through the talented Vietnamese ‘Golden Generation’. I got a legendary director title,” he wrote and looked back on the five years of Vietnam under the “Director Park Hang-seo system.”
The AFC picked the 2019 United Arab Emirates (UAE) Vietnam-Japan quarterfinal match as the most impressive match for Park Hang-seo.
At the time, Vietnam lost 0-1 to Japan, but surprised everyone with its tenacious performance, holding on to Japan, which was the favorite for the championship. After the game, applause was even more focused on the “loser” Vietnam. ‘I lost but fought well’ followed the evaluation.
To coach Park Hang-seo, who is leaving Vietnam, AFC concluded by saying, “He will forever be considered a legend in Southeast Asian countries.”
