Gotz given Vietnam job
Former Hertha Berlin and 1860 Munich coach Falko Gotz has been appointed the new manager of Vietnam.
The 49-year-old agreed a two-year contract to fill the post left vacant by Henrique Calisto after the latter departed to take over Thai Premier League team Muang Thong United.
"But my philosophy is based on three principles - discipline, physical fitness and team spirit. However, my responsibility is not just to the national team but to also help develop football in the region."
VFF president Pham Ngoc Vien added: "Of all the coaches on the shortlist, Falko Gotz was best suited for football in Vietnam and met the criteria set out.
Gotz's first competitive game in charge will come early next month when Vietnam begin their 2014 FIFA World Cup™ qualifying campaign against Macau.
