Former national team member Tran Cong Minh has been reappointed as head coach of V-League 1 side Dong Tam Long An (DTLA). The position fell vacant when the previous coach, Croatian Buketa Ranko, was sacked after two consecutive losses.
This is the third time that Minh, 42, has taken the position as head coach of DTLA. He coached DTLA in the 2008 and 2010 seasons.
Minh, who hails from Dong Thap and used to coach DTLA's U-21 team, has the tough job ahead of him helping DTLA get advance to V-League next season.
"DTLA's goal is to return to V-League," said Minh. "I will try my best to help my team play well although many challenges are awaiting me. Immediately, I need to help my team achieve three points in the eighth round."
After seven rounds, the two-time V-League champions have 10 points (three wins, one draw and three losses) to rank seventh.-VNS
