Thanh Hoa release striker Quan
THANH HOA (VNS) — V-League leader Thanh Hoa ended their contract with overseas striker Mac Hong Quan on Wednesday.
The club said Quan, who was called to the national team, did not play as well as expected.
Quan has spent significant time on the bench since the start of the season, overlooked for a berth in the forward line by Sunday Emmanuel and Le Van Tan.
"In the contract there is an article that allows us to end the contract before the required time if the player does not meet our needs.
"The managing board have conversed with each other and made the decision," said Nguyen Trong Hoai, Thanh Hoa's deputy chairman.
Last year, Quan scored five goals for Thanh Hoa leading to an offer of a one-year contract.
The new season runs for eight rounds with Thanh Hoa topping the leader board with 19 points after seven matches.
Thanh Hoa will face against Quang Nam in the V-League tomorrow on home turf. — VNS
