HÀ NỘI — Two Vietnamese futsal players Nguyễn Minh Trí and Trần Thái Huy will compete for Y.S.C.C. Yokohama FC of Japan for three months, their club Thái Sơn Nam have confirmed.
Trí and Huy are scheduled to join the Japanese club from local futsal side Thái Sơn Nam on Monday with their contracts lasting until January 12, 2020.
Yokohama FC currently play in the J.League 2 in Japan and are targeting promotion to the top league in the near future.
With nine matches played in the season so far, the Japanese club currently top the table with 25 points, three points above the team in second place. In total, the J.League 2 consists of eight teams.
The Vietnamese players have taken part in the recent AFC Futsal Club Championship held in Phú Thọ Gymnasium in HCM City in which they help Việt Nam rank third and progressed to the AFC Futsal Championship 2020 Finals.
“Previously, several Japanese futsal teams paid attention to Vietnamese players but they didn’t invite any. Now, they signed contracts. It meant our players have a great advance,” said Trần Anh Tú, chairman of Thái Sơn Nam futsal club.
“This is a good chance for Vietnamese players to hone their skills and gain experience. In the future, Vietnamese players will continue to leave for Spain to compete,” said Tú. — VNS
