Thai coach Kiatisuk Senamuang is returning to Vietnam to take the position of head coach at Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) Club in the 2021 season.

HLV Kiatisuk: 'HAGL có thể vô địch V-League'

Thai coach Kiatisuk Senamuang will return to Vietnam to re-unite with Doan Nguyen Duc.

It is reported that the Thai coach has signed a 2-year contract with HAGL and Kiatisuk is expected to arrive in Vietnam this December.

Kiatisuk played for the Hoang Anh Gia Lai Club as a striker at V-League from 2002 to 2006. He then stepped up as head coach in 2006 after the club sacked coach Arjhan Songamsap who was also from Thailand. Senamuang was the first person to be both player and head coach in the V-League.

“I came to Vietnam 18 years ago. I love Pleiku. I love Vietnamese football so much. When I played at HAGL, there were also many fans at home or guest stadiums. Vietnamese people love Zico. I was in Vietnam for 5 years and won two V-League championship titles. It’s great to be back here,” Thai coach Kiatisuk said in a recent online exchange.

Explaining the decision to accept Doan Nguyen Duc’s invitation to lead HAGL, he said: “Vietnamese football is the best in Southeast Asia. Coming to Vietnam is like coming home. I don’t have to think much when I go to Vietnam.”

“Mr. Duc is the person who always takes care of the players. He also invests in Vietnamese football. I want to work for him. Mr. Duc not only gave me football career but also a coaching career.”

Da Nang museums attracting domestic visitors with free entry policy

Published

on

Due to COVID-19, museums around the country have welcomed substantially fewer visitors.

Da Nang, however, has introduced a policy of free entry to museums during all of 2021, which has encouraged a number of domestic travellers to visit the central coastal city and improved the local tourism sector.

After a period of not welcoming any visitors due to the pandemic and then widespread flooding, the Cham Museum in Da Nang has hosted many domestic travellers keen to learn more about the Champa people’s architectural marvels.

The Cham Museum is not alone in posting an increase in visitors, with other museums in the city also welcoming more people due at least in part to the free entry policy introduced by local authorities for all of this year.

Museums around Da Nang welcomed an average of 1,000 to 1,500 visitors during the first week of the new year. While entry is free, services and programs remain top quality.

Museums around Da Nang are considered valuable in helping people discover and explore the local land and people. With the free entry policy, visitors from all walks of life can understand more about the central city./. VNA

According to the Thailand-based Grand Sport, the new uniforms feature a large red star in an echo effect design at the centre, which represents the resilience and unity of the Vietnamese people, the players, and the millions of football fans around the country.
