Vietnam national team head coach Nguyen Huu Thang said he is “emotional” ahead of the friendly match against Indonesia, where he would face his former coach Alfred Riedl.
Riedl coached the Golden Stars in the late 1990s, when Nguyen Huu Thang was the captain of the team.
“I’m really emotional ahead of the match tomorrow, where I could meet Mr. Riedl, who coached me and the national team in the late-1990s. I always respect and support him”, the former Song Lam Nghe An said in a conference yesterday.
“There was a time when he was the head coach of the national team, and I was the captain. Together we would achieve a lot”, Nguyen Huu Thang said.
“I think it will be an exciting match, now that I’m coaching Vietnam national team and he is coaching Indonesia”.
