HÀ NỘI — Phan Văn Tài Em has resigned as coach of V.League 1’s side Sài Gòn FC following poor results of the team in the league.
Em is the second coach to quit during the event. Earlier, Thanh Hóa club’s coach Marian Mihailalso left after four rounds.
Under the guidance of Em since early this year, Sài Gòn FC have had three wins, four draws and 10 losses to rank at the bottom of the score chart, with only 13 points after 16 rounds.
“Sài Gòn have not had satisfactory results, so I want to give up this position to another person. I think I do not have much experience in the national premiere league. I hope the club will perform better in the other games to prevent disqualification,” Em said.
Assistant coach Nguyễn Thành Công will temporarily replace Em to lead the team in the match with Nam Định for the 17th round this Sunday.
Em is a retired Vietnamese footballer who last played as midfielder for ĐồngTâm Long An. He is a former member of the national football team and was awarded the Vietnamese Golden Ball in 2005. — VNS
