Coach Thanh’s tough words post Nha Trang escape, HAGL still in focus

Hoang Anh Gia Lai Held to Goalless Draw with Khanh Hoa: Coach Vu Tien Thanh Talks Tough

Hoang Anh Gia Lai faced a tough challenge on their visit to Nha Trang stadium, as Khanh Hoa put up a strong defensive front. Despite dominating possession, it was the home team that posed the most significant threat, with goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung crucial in keeping the visitors in the game, notably making a crucial save in the 69th minute.

The match ended in a goalless draw, leaving both teams stagnant in the V-League 2023/24 standings. Hoang Anh Gia Lai, under coach Vu Tien Thanh, sits at a mere 7 points after 11 games, just above Khanh Hoa, who trail by a single point. Cong Viettel also finds themselves in a precarious position after a defeat to Quang Nam, with 9 points in the bag after 11 rounds.

Following the match, Coach Vu Tien Thanh expressed his belief that his side deserved a better outcome. Despite the lack of victories since taking over the reins, he remains optimistic about the team’s progress and their chances in the remaining 15 matches of the season, citing improvements in their playing style, energy levels, and overall organization.

Looking ahead, Hoang Anh Gia Lai will face Thanh Hoa at their stadium in round 12 on March 2. Coach Velizar Popov’s team, coming off a 1-3 loss to Hanoi Police, remains a formidable opponent despite their recent setback.

With a challenging road ahead, Hoang Anh Gia Lai will need to build on their recent performances and continue to strive for better results to climb up the V-League standings. The upcoming matches will test their resolve and determination as they aim to secure valuable points and make their mark in the ongoing season.
