Park Hang-seo honoured for contributions to Vietnamese football

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST) held a ceremony in Hanoi on August 27 to present the second-class Labour Order, a noble award of the Vietnamese Party and State, to head coach Park Hang-seo of the Vietnam men’s national football team.

Speaking at the event, MCST Minister Nguyen Ngoc Thien thanked and congratulated the three Korean honourees, highlighting that since Park took charge of Vietnam’s national teams, Vietnamese football has achieved great progress.

The official voiced his belief that Park and members of the coaching staff would continue to tap into their abilities and harvest new successes with the national and U23 squads in particular and Vietnamese football as a whole, especially as Vietnam is looking toward several key goals - advancing to the final round of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, defending the AFF Suzuki Cup trophy, and repeating their SEA Games gold medal next year.

Sharing his feelings about the noble award, Park Hang-seo said he understood the significance of the Labour Order and was aware of his significant responsibility toward Vietnamese football.

The Korean coach vowed to continue giving his full capability to seeking promising new players and making stronger tactical adjustments to build a much stronger Vietnamese team.

He pledged to make every effort to bring greater joy to Vietnamese fans in the near future.
