Miura unveiled as the new coach of Vietnam

The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) made the bold move on Saturday of appointing a relative unknown as their national team head coach.

According to a report on the ASEAN Football Federation’s official website (www.aseanfootball.org) on Monday, 50-year-old Japanese tactician Toshiya Miura signed a two-year contract to manage the Golden Stars that includes a monthly salary of $12,000.

“The VFF did not choose Miura due to his CV. We trusted him, as he was introduced by the Japan Football Association. He was not well-known, but it was not a problem,” VFF president Hung Dung was quoted as saying.
