The Football Federation (VFF) decided on Thursday to fire Japanese coach after a series of poor performances by the teams under his helm, with the latest disappointing games played in an Asian under-23 championship this month.

VFF officials reached a conclusion at a meeting in Ho Chi Minh City that they will terminate the contract with Miura two months early.

Two Vietnamese coaches, Le Huynh Duc and Nguyen Huu Thang, are being considered candidates to replace the 53-year-old Japanese man.

The VFF is expected to pay Miura two months’ salary as compensation, with his gross monthly pay estimated at US$25,000.

The football governing body is required to notify him of the contract termination one month in advance, so it will have to pay him three months’ salary in total before seeing him off.

Miura was appointed manager of both the national and U-23 squads of Vietnam in May 2014.
