Nam Dinh FC bids farewell to Manchester United’s former target

Nam Dinh Club Makes Changes in Mid-Season Transfer Period

The ongoing mid-season transfer window in the V-League offers clubs a chance to reshuffle their squads in pursuit of their specific objectives. Nam Dinh, the current top-ranking club, is keen on bolstering their roster to cement their leading position.

Nam Dinh recently bid farewell to Brazilian striker Douglas Coutinho, signaling their intent to bring in midfielder Lucas Alves de Araujo as his replacement. Coach Vu Hong Viet, equipped with a plethora of quality local strikers like Tran Van Dat and Nguyen Van Toan, made the decision to part ways with Coutinho. The focus now appears to be on fortifying the team’s defense to shore up their performances.

Coutinho, a standout performer for Atletico Paranaense in the Brazilian National Championship, attracted interest from European giants Manchester United and Atletico Madrid in the past. Despite the speculation, a move never materialized, leading him to join Nam Dinh.

In the current campaign, Coutinho’s impact has been limited, featuring in 10 matches predominantly as a substitute, amassing a mere 477 minutes on the field. His contributions include a solitary goal and two assists, underlining the need for a change in personnel at Nam Dinh.

As the transfer window rages on, Nam Dinh’s decision to part ways with Coutinho underscores their ambitions to fortify key areas and sustain their momentum in the V-League. With the arrival of Lucas Alves de Araujo expected to inject fresh impetus into the midfield, the club is poised for an intriguing second half of the season under Coach Vu Hong Viet’s guidance.

The departure of Coutinho marks the beginning of a new chapter for Nam Dinh, as they strive to maintain their supremacy in the V-League and fend off challenges from their rivals. Stay tuned for more updates as the transfer window unfolds.
