On Monday, former V-League champions Song Lam Nghe An bid adieu to Ndjodo Edouard, one of their three foreign players, after only seven rounds.
The club managers remarked that Edouard had failed to match up to their expectations, scoring just two goals. They also pointed out that he lacked the aerial skills necessary for a striker, despite towering at 1.91m.
"We knew that he was only a middle level player when he came to the trial sessions at our club. Since our budget was low, we decided to sign a contract with him. However, he has let us down, and we do not need him anymore," said Nguyen Hong Thanh, the director of the Song Lam Nghe An Football Sport Joint Stock Company.
Nghe An is currently banking on two foreign players: striker Biayaga Paul Emile and midfielder Rodrigues Moreira Guilherme. — VNS
