HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese midfielder Nguyễn Tuấn Anh has had a knee surgery and needs at least two months to return to football.
Anh suffered an injury two months ago, during his training his Japanese Yokohama FC. It cost him a spot on the national team competing at the ASEAN Football Federation Suzuki Cup, which saw Việt Nam’s defeat at the semi-finals.
Anh--who will return to his former club Hoàng Anh Gia Lai for V.League 2017--had his operation in Singapore on December 15, and Hoàng Anh Gia Lai official Nguyễn Tấn Anh said he will remain in the country for one week before flying home.
Tấn Anh said after two months--if he recovers well--he can play the first leg of the V.League, which will kick off on January 8. — VNS
