The Asian Soccer Confederation (AFC) printed a 1,500-word put up on Monday on the journey of coach Park Cling-seo with Vietnamese soccer, calling him “an enduring legacy.”
Park ended his five-and-a-half-year stint with Vietnamese soccer after Vietnam completed as runners-up on the AFF Cup 2022 on January 16, dropping to Thailand.
His contract with Vietnam Soccer Federation ends on January 31 and he determined to not renew it.
With Park on the helm, Vietnamese soccer went by way of “a interval of unprecedented success” each at senior and U-23 ranges, the AFC stated.
The put up recapped on how Park took Vietnam to new heights, beginning with the rise of a brand new technology for gamers on the 2018 AFC U23 Asian Cup in China, when Vietnam knocked Qatar out on penalties to enter the ultimate for the primary time in any AFC match.
Park continued to steer Vietnam to many different historic moments on the AFF Cup, the Asian Cup, SEA Video games and the World Cup qualifiers.
“Park now steps down after taking the Vietnam crew and his passionate followers on a journey like no different and one which ensures he’ll eternally be considered a legend within the Southeast Asian nation,” AFC stated.
