Implications of Coach Troussier’s Insensitive Behavior

Coach Troussier’s Insensitivity: A Cause for Concern for Vietnam National Team

Vietnam’s national team faced a 0-1 loss against Indonesia in the 2nd World Cup 2026 Group F match, highlighting a series of tactical errors and a lack of effective resource utilization. Coach Philippe Troussier’s insensitivity towards Vietnamese football was brought to attention, with his calm reaction post-defeat drawing criticism amidst extreme disappointment from players and fans.

The French strategist’s lack of reaction and ineffective substitutions during the game contrasted sharply with his predecessor’s motivating approach, leaving players exhausted and demoralized. Star player Nguyen Quang Hai’s omission without justification further underscored Troussier’s questionable methods, potentially impacting the team’s morale in upcoming matches.

Troussier’s disconnect with fans, coupled with a string of defeats and a reported 80% call for his dismissal, reflects a growing dissatisfaction among supporters. His perceived rigidity and insensitivity are perceived to contribute to the team’s declining performance, prompting calls for his swift removal as trust in his leadership hits a low point ahead of the rematch at My Dinh Stadium on March 26.

With the state of affairs surrounding Troussier and the team’s performance, the Vietnam National Team faces a crucial period as they look to regroup and revitalize their campaign in the World Cup 2026.
