Head coach of the national football team, Park Hang-seo, was presented a car on Thursday by Trường Hải Auto Corporation.

Hang-seo got the gift for his contribution to the national U23 squad’s success in last month’s Asian Championship in China.

Trường Hải, a leading car manufacturer in Việt Nam, earlier presented VNĐ1 billion (US$45,000) to the whole team.

Trường Hải General Director Trần Bá Dương said it was a bonus to express the corporation’s appreciation for Hang-seo.

Dương himself handed over the VNĐ918 million ($41,000) Kia Optima to Hang-seo in a ceremony just a few hours before the South Korean coach returned home for a holiday.

Hang-seo said the car would be used in the most effective way not only for himself but also for the coaching board members and players.

Hang-seo will be back in Việt Nam in early March to work with the national football team for future international tournaments. — VNS
