HÀ NỘI — V. League 1 club Hà Nội FC has decided to recall midfielder Trần Đình Trọng from Sài Gòn FC to play for them in the upcoming football season.
The 21-year-old player used to play for Hà Nội FC but was borrowed by Sài Gòn FC under a loan contract.
The Hanoian has been a key player for Sài Gòn FC in the three recent tournaments. Strong, reliable and vigilant, Trọng helped Sài Gòn FC rank fifth in last year’s event.
According to experts, Trọng is one of the potential young midfielders in Vietnamese football at present. He played well for Sài Gòn in the national premier league and for the national U23 team in the AFC U23 Championship in China, in which Việt Nam became the runner-up.
Trọng’s contract with Sài Gòn is valid until the end of this year. However, he will return to Hà Nội FC.
“Trọng will come back to play for Hà Nội from the beginning of the league in March. With Trọng’s presence, Hà Nội’s defence line will be very strong,” said Nguyễn Quốc Tuấn, deputy director of Hà Nội FC.
“I am very happy to be back to play for the capital team. I will give my best to my native team,” Trọng said. — VNS
