Head coach Hoang Gia of SQC Binh Dinh FC resigned after his team lost 2-5 to Can Tho in the sixth round of the V-League 1 on Sunday.
Involved as team coach from the start of the current season, Gia bravely selected young players such as Huynh Van Thanh and Bui Hoang My who have gradually become the backbones of the club. However, bad results after six rounds have made promotion to a higher division difficult. At the moment, Binh Dinh are ranked in eighth position on eight points.
Club managing director Pham Van Thanh told Bong Da (Football) newspaper: "When coach Hoang Gia tendered his resignation, we asked him to stay. However, he has stuck to his initial decision."-VNS
