HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese futsal player Phạm Đức Hòa has signed a contract to play for O Parrulo Ferrol FS of Spain after a successful trial with the team recently.
Hòa and teammate Trần Văn Vũ from national champion Thái Sơn Nam were invited to O Parrulo Ferrol for two-month trial in November.
Their performance during this time impressed the club’s managers who finally want to have them for this season’s schedule. However, Thái Sơn Nam’s boss Trần Anh Tú agreed to released Hòa only as he wanted Vũ to continue with his team in 2020.
On their website, O Parrulo Ferrol posted that Hòa would wear the jersey No 19 while no more details of the contract was revealed.
O Parrulo compete in the Premiera Division, the highest level of Spain’s futsal system. The team is managed by Hector Souto who experienced Việt Nam’s futsal environment for several years.
O Parrulo finished at eleventh among 16 teams last season. After 18 matches, they won five, drew five and lost eight to finish with 20 points.
Hòa was a key player of Thái Sơn Nam and the national team for years. He won Silver Ball statue for second best futsal player of 2017, a Bronze Ball in 2018 and is in the shortlist of Golden Ball in 2019.
Hòa, 28, will make his official appearance with the new club after next month’s Asian Futsal Championship. — VNS
