Park Hang-seo (64), head coach of the Vietnam national team, opened up about a battle of nerves with head coach Shin Tae-yong (53).
Vietnam defeated Indonesia 2-0 thanks to Nguyen Tien Linh’s multi-goal in the second leg of the 2022 Southeast Asian Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Cup semi-final held at My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi, Vietnam on the 9th (Korean time). Vietnam got the ticket to the final with a total of 2-0 in the first and second games.
According to Vietnamese media Tuoi Tre, coach Park Hang-seo said after the match, “Vietnam has not won against Indonesia in the AFF Cup for 26 years. I had to break the jinx for future juniors,” he said. “With the team’s efforts, we reached the final. I am proud of the team,” he laughed.
The two Korean chiefs unfolded a ‘war of nerves’. Controversy arose as the two command towers did not shake hands with each other. Coach Shin Tae-yong also posted a post on SNS (social media) demanding fair play between the referee and players. 메이저놀이터
In response, coach Park Hang-seo said, “Coach Tae-yong Shin and I have no choice but to react sensitively to the outcome of the game. As a result, we talked about each other. After the game, our relationship returned to normal,” he said. “Such provocations are not desirable. I don’t do social media I don’t know how to rate this.”
This Mitsubishi Cup is the last tournament under coach Park Hang-seo after leading Vietnam. Becoming Vietnam Command Tower in 2017, he puts down the baton after this tournament.
Manager Park Hang-seo said, “Many players have grown over the past five years. I try to make the best use of the resources I have and get the best results,” he said, looking back, saying, “I am an ordinary manager, but I did my best.”
The final opponent is one of the victorious teams of Thailand and Malaysia, which will be held at 9:30 pm on the 10th. The head coach of Malaysia is Kim Pan-gon. Manager Park Hang-seo said, “There is still a final game left, but I will try to repay the love of the fans by winning the game with the spirit of Vietnam with the players.”
Meanwhile, coach Shin Tae-yong said, “I think Vietnam played a good game. Congrats on continuing to keep scoreless.”
