SEOUL, Jan. 19 (Korea Bizwire) — Vietnam’s state airline has gifted Park Hang-seo, the South Korean head coach of the Vietnamese men’s national football team, with a ticket that provides permanent access to any of its flights.
Vietnamese state-run media VTC reported that Vietnam Airlines presented park and his wife tickets that provide permanent business seats for them on flights between Vietnam and South Korea.
“It is a token of appreciation we’d like to send to coach Park who has led our national football team with dedication, honor, and victory,” Vietnam Airlines said.
During Park’s reign, which began in October 2017, Vietnam enjoyed unprecedented success at both under-23 and senior levels.
Vietnam won the 2018 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) title, their first in 10 years, and reached the quarterfinals at the 2019 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, matching their best performance at the top continental tournament.
Vietnam also reached the final Asian qualification round for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Park guided the U-23 national team to gold medals at the 2019 and 2021 Southeast Asian Games after taking them to second place at the AFC U-23 Asian Cup and fourth place at the Asian Games, both in 2018.
