Thai Premier League outfit Chonburi has denied the rumor of the interest in Vietnamese youngster Nguyen Cong Phuong.
Previously, according to Vietnamese newspapers, Chonburi is considering making a bid to sign Nguyen Cong Phuong from V.League club Hoang Anh Gia Lai. However, Chonburi FC marketing director, Jeerasak Jomthong was quick to dismiss the rumor.
“Nguyen Cong Phuong is not in our ASEAN players shortlist,” Jeerasak told local newspapers.
“Our technical director Wittaya Laohakul went to Japan last week. Maybe it was where the rumors come from”.
“We have no idea how well does he play at the J2 League”, Jeerasak said.
