Coach Vu Tien Thanh stays strong after Nha Trang escape, criticizes HAGL

Hoang Anh Gia Lai Struggle to a Goalless Draw Against Khanh Hoa in V-League 2023/24

Hoang Anh Gia Lai faced a tough challenge against Khanh Hoa at Nha Trang stadium, with the home team creating more dangerous opportunities despite HAGL’s possession dominance. However, thanks to rookie goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung’s stellar performance, particularly in the 69th minute, where he denied Guirassy Mamadou’s close-range shot, HAGL managed to secure a goalless draw.

Both teams remain stagnant in the V-League 2023/24 rankings, with HAGL and Khanh Hoa sitting at the bottom with 7 and 6 points, respectively. Viettel, on the other hand, find themselves in hot water after losing to Quang Nam, leaving them with 9 points after 11 rounds.

Despite the lack of victories since Vu Tien Thanh took over from Kiatisuk Senamuang, the HAGL coach believes his team is making significant progress. Thanh expressed his satisfaction with the team’s performance, stating that they deserved a better result and showed improvement in their style of play and their ability to create clear opportunities.

Looking forward, HAGL will face Thanh Hoa in round 12 on March 2, following their recent 1-3 defeat against Hanoi Police. Coach Velizar Popov’s team may have suffered a setback, but they remain a formidable opponent for any team.

In conclusion, despite the challenges faced by Hoang Anh Gia Lai, coach Vu Tien Thanh remains optimistic about the team’s progress and their ability to compete in the remaining matches. With a focus on improving their play style and maintaining a strong team spirit, HAGL aims to climb up the rankings and secure better results in the upcoming games.
