Môn is a shareholder of the club and director of Thuận Đạo industrial zone in Long An Province.

Nhiệm resigned after his club displayed unsporting behaviour in the match between Long An and HCM City on February 19.

Long An’s coach Ngô Quang Sang and captain Huỳnh Quang Thanh have also been dismissed. Managing director Huỳnh Ngọc San was asked to resign.

According to a source, Long An will invite 63-year-old coach Henrique Calisto of Portugal to train the team.

Calisto was involved with Long An during their national premier league wins in 2005 and 2006. Calisto also helped Việt Nam national men’s football team take the title at the AFF Cup in 2008.
