Nearly a third of the teams in the V-League have changed coaches.
Binh Duong FC’s coach Phan Thanh Hung (left) has just resigned, the fourth coach who lost his job in V-League.
So far, Saigon FC, Hanoi FC, Hong Linh Ha Tinh FC and the latest, Binh Duong FC, have changed their coaches for the same reason: the teams did not perform well.
Of the four coaches who have lost their position, except for Japanese coach Masahiro Shimoda who has not left any impression, the rest have proven their ability in the V-League for many years. However, they were unable to hold their seats. They were fired or actively resigned.
Looking at the last rounds in the V-League, it can be said that the 2021 football season is exciting, stressful and full of surprises. And this makes the seats of coaches of V-League clubs more fragile.

It seems that some other clubs also plan to change their coaches. It is rumored that HCM City FC is seeking a deal with former football star Dusit to be its new coach, replacing Mano Polking or Hanoi FC, although recently replacing coach Chu Dinh Nghiem by Hoang Van Phuc, wants to hire a Korean coach to replace Phuc.
Those are the most obvious movements, but when the V-League enters the upcoming fierce period, no one is really sure they can keep their job until the end of the 2021 season.
But there is an exception, Thai coach Kiatisuk at Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) FC. Kiatisuk can’t be named right now in the group of coaches who are at risk of losing their jobs in the V-League when HAGL ranks first in V-League 2021 and is the biggest candidate for the championship this year.
Veteran V. League coach passes away
Le Thuy Hai, a three-time V. League winning coach, died of pancreatic cancer aged 76 on Friday.
Hai was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. In March, he had still met with Becamex Binh Duong coaching staff and players during their trip to Hanoi.
Binh Duong, managed by Hai five times, won the V. League title in 2007, 2008 and 2014, along with two National Cup crowns in 2008 and 2014.
“I watched every game of Binh Duong on TV. The club is forever in my heart. There would be no Le Thuy Hai without Binh Duong,” Hai said in March.
He also coached other clubs in Vietnam like SHB Da Nang, Thanh Hoa FC, and Hai Phong FC. He spent his last season at Thanh Hoa as technical director and head coach in 2016.
Hai played football from 1965 to 1980. He started his coaching career from 1995 as an assistant coach.
Besides his many triumphs, Hai is remembered for his strong personality and honesty.
“In my mind you are a strong, simple and filled with compassion. Whether loved or hated, everyone respects you,” former footballer Vu Nhu Thanh, Hai’s student, maintained.
Việt Nam secure seventh Olympic slot in rowing
HÀ NỘI — Rowers have secured Viet Nam’s seventh Olympic slot at the World Rowing Asia and Oceania Olympic and Paralympic qualification regatta which ended in Japan on Friday.
Duo Lường Thị Thảo and Đinh Thị Hảo finished second in the women’s lightweight double sculls with a time of 7 minuted and 17.34 seconds. They were behind Chiaki Tomita and Ayami Oishi of the hosts who finished in 7:15.84. The bronze went to Zeinab Norouzi Tazeh Kand and Kimia Zarei of Iran on 7:23.86.
The top three in double events will qualify for the Tokyo Games, where Thảo and Hảo will compete in their first Olympics.
Their teammate Phạm Thị Huệ was fourth in the women’s single sculls. Her result could have seen her qualify as the top five receiving slots to Tokyo in individual races, however, each country was only allowed to send its highest-placed qualifier to the Games.
On the men’s side, Nguyễn Văn Hiếu failed to make the top five in the single sculls and was sixth with a time of 7:34.11.
More than 75 athletes went to Japan for the tournament which started on May 5 on the Tokyo 2021 rowing course, the Sea Forest Waterway venue.
Six boat classes contested the qualification regatta in Tokyo – the men’s and women’s single sculls, lightweight double sculls and para single sculls.
Previously, Việt Nam secured berths in swimming by Nguyễn Huy Hoàng, gymnastics by Lê Thanh Tùng and Đinh Phương Thành, archery by Nguyễn Hoàng Phi Vũ and Đỗ Thị Ánh Nguyệt, and boxing by Nguyễn Văn Đương.
The Tokyo Games, which was delayed for one year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, is scheduled to take place from July 23 to August 8, with a total of 339 sets of medals across 33 sports.
Việt Nam’s best result in the Games was a gold medal in the men’s 10m air pistol by Hoàng Xuân Vinh at the Rio de Janeiro Games in 2016.

Origami fabric folding is used as a sophisticated highlight.
Cong Tri also uses two brand features, dahlia flowers and bows, to create a visual highlight for the new collection.
Dahlia flowers and 3D ribbons are embossed to create interesting accents for the designs.
