Japanese coach Toshiya Miura, who was sacked by Vietnam Football Federation in January, has turned down an offer to remain in Vietnam and work as football director for V.League side Than Quang Ninh FC, citing personal reasons.
“I’m delighted to receive an official offer from the president of Than Quang Ninh FC. However, I have decided to turn down the offer due to personal reasons,” Miura told local newspaper in Vietnam.
On February 5th, one day before returning to Japan, coach Miura received an offer to work as a football director for Than Quang Ninh FC, local news reported.
Had Miura accepted the offer, he would receive a salary of USD 15,000 per month, more or less the salary he had received during the tenure as head coach of Vietnam national football team.
According to local newspaper in Vietnam, Miura hasn’t decided when he would go back to work, as he wanted to spend time taking care of his wife and two children after two years living abroad.
