The Vietnam Football Association, which appointed head coach Philip Troussier (68), is dreaming of ambitious dreams.
Head coach Park Hang-seo put the baton in charge of the Vietnamese national soccer team at the end of January 31st. The Vietnam Football Association appointed Trudeau as his successor. Trucier is a leader who is well versed in the situation in Vietnam, such as serving as the coach of the Vietnam U19 national team.
Coach Park Hang-seo raised Vietnamese football to the best in East Asia. The fruit is actually being eaten by director Trudeau. According to ‘Zing News’, director Troussier’s annual salary was confirmed to be 1.5 million dollars (approximately 1.95 billion won). It is a way for the Football Association sponsor to compensate Troussier’s annual salary. He was guaranteed a four-year contract until July 31, 2026. 먹튀검증
There are also voices of criticism inside Vietnam about the Vietnam Football Association’s giving Trudeau the highest salary. Coach Park Hang-seo also received criticism from the media when he signed a renewal contract, saying, “Isn’t it getting too much from Vietnamese sentiment?” Moreover, it is pointed out that it was premature to give Trudeau, who has yet to achieve any results, the highest amount ever in Vietnam.
The Vietnam National Soccer Team Technical Committee absolutely supports Trudeau’s appointment. There is a belief that Trussier can advance Vietnam to the 2026 North and Central America World Cup, which will increase the number of participating countries to 48. Troussier’s contract period was also set until the end of the World Cup.
Even inside Vietnam, there are sayings such as “It is dangerous to entrust Trudeau to a four-year contract” and “The salary is too expensive.” Trussier plans to lead the national team in earnest from March in preparation for the ‘2023 Southeast Asian Games’ that will open in May.
