Vietnam Appoint Foreign Administrator

Hanoi – The Vietnam Professional Football JSC (VPF) have appointed Koji Tanaka as the chief organizer of the V-League.

The 58-year-old former Japanese international has been roped in to inject more vibrancy into the V-League which has suffered over the past year due to financial issues.

“It’s an honor for me to be introduced to Vietnam to receive this important mission. I would thoroughly learn about the Vietnam football and would like to receive the active support of the collective behind. I will try to quickly get into the job and run the league well,” said Koji.

Added Pham Ngoc Vien, the general director of the VPF: “we have noticed that Koji is very enthusiastic, passionate and highly professional. These are the criteria that VPF sets when looking for the V-League chief organizer.”

COMMENT - you have foreign players and foreign coaches...makes sense to have foreign administrators if they are more competent than those on the ground. The question is will he be allowed to succeed?

Can't see this happening in Indonesia but then again, who'd have they would be doing this in Vietnam?
