HA NOI (VNS)—Hoang Van Phuc can continue his job as head coach of the national Under-23 team after being suspended for four days during the Binh Duong Television International Football Cup which closed on Sunday.

There has not been an official document from the Viet Nam Football Federation confirming the decision, but its chairman Nguyen Trong Hy said the suspension was only effective for the last two matches of the tournament.

"Tomorrow (Monday) he could return to work as usual as the head coach of the team. I hope Phuc will continue his job, guiding Viet Nam at the SEA Games," Hy said.

Phuc was criticised after a dismal performance from his players during a match against Brazil's Bangu Atletic last Wednesday.

In response, Phuc said he had already been informed about the restoration of his post. However he was still thinking about it and had not yet made a decision.

"My players want me to stay. I also hope to continue with them. However, I have not decided yet because I am still confused," Phuc said.

The U23 team will now have time to relax before gathering at the end of this month in Binh Duong Province to prepare for the SEA Games in December. — VNS
