HÀ NỘI -- FIFA-accredited referee Võ Quang Vinh said goodbye to V.League 2016, due to his knee injury.
Vinh, 41, injured himself while running in the International U21 Football Tournament last year. But he re-injured himself in the recent league match between Hải Phòng and Bình Dương, forcing him to have left knee surgery.
According to his doctor, Vinh needs at least six months to recover his strength. So he has to say goodbye to the remaining matches of the national premier league.
Vinh won the Golden Whistle award in 2011 and 2012. — VNS
