HÀ NỘI — V.League 1 club HCM City have signed a three-year contract with Đỗ Văn Thuận from Sài Gòn FC to prepare for this year’s football season.
Midfielder Thuận is considered a valuable player of Sài Gòn FC and one of the best midfielders of the League. The 25-year-old player is highly appreciated for his skills: speed, strength, observation and creation.
Thuận had spectacular goals in the National Premiere League 2017, including goals in the match between Sài Gòn FC and FLC Thanh Hóa in the 17th round and in the match with HCM City in the 23rd round, which impressed acting chairman of HCM City Lê Công Vinh.
Thuận is the 10th rookie of HCM City. Earlier, to prepare for the League, HCM City inked a contract with former Manchester United midfielder Rodrigo Pereira Possebon and signed a two-year contract with former Việt Nam national team coach Toshiya Miura and had new signings with many local players.
HCM City aim to shine at the League this year, after their third-from-bottom finish in the 14-team V.League 1 last year. — VNS
