Vietnam’s Nguyen Kong Phuong, who played for Incheon United in the professional football K League 1, joined Yokohama FC in the Japanese J-League.
Vietnamese media ‘VN Express’ said on the 17th (Korean time), “Kong Phuong signed a two-year contract with Yokohama FC. Kong Phuong, who is currently staying in Vietnam, will move to Japan early next year and join a new team in earnest.” reported that 토토
Kong Phuong is a favorite disciple of coach Park Hang-seo in the Vietnamese national soccer team, and is a player familiar to domestic fans after playing for Incheon United in 2019.
Kong Phuong, however, returned to Vietnam after not being able to stand out in the K-League, such as only participating in 8 matches. After he was loaned to Sint Trawiddon (Belgium), he also threw a challenge on the European stage, but it was also not a big success.
After completing his lease with Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Kong Phuong’s contract with Hoang Anja Lai (Vietnam) expired, and he will wear a Yokohama uniform as a free contract.
Attention is focusing on what kind of performance Kong Phuong will perform in the Japanese stage challenge, which has been somewhat disappointing in Korea and Belgium.
Meanwhile, Yokohama FC was promoted from the J-League 2 (second division) last season, and is ambitiously challenging the first division in the new season.
