HÀ NỘI — Veteran coach Trần Bình Sự has been invited to take charge of former V.League champions Becamex Bình Dương in the next season.
The two sides have discussed all terms and the contract will be signed on November 2, the date when players are summoned for practice.
The 68-year-old had bid adieu to Đồng Nai Football Club after the last season.
This is the second time Sự will work with the team. He first managed the club in 2003, pushing them into the national premier league V.League. “Back to Bình Dương after 13 years. It feels like I am back home. I hope I will be as successful as I was the first time,” Sự said.
His first responsibility will be the Bình Dương Television Cup in early December, where he will have the opportunity to pick the best players for his team. “I have talked with the team’s managing board. There’s no pressure on me for achievement but they’ve asked me to draw up a plan to make the team’s current young players its key players over the next three years. I think it is a suitable target and also the trend in modern football. Bình Dương are focusing on youth training and they have at least five players strong enough to join the first team,” said Sự.
“I am going to build a team that has a beautiful playing style, not just one that ranks high in V.League. It will help us lure more spectators to our stadium,” the coach said.
Bình Dương failed to defend their title in the 2015-16 season. They finished 10th out of 14. — VNS
