The saga continues...
It is getting more and more ridiculous.
Well, we're talking about The Cong (it should be Viettel FC now) again. Its destiny is still under doubt. Since Viettel Telecom put the club on sale last month, some organizations and other clubs from all over the country have shown their interest. They are Ho Chi Minh City FC, an unknown group from Binh Duong and the most recent is ACB Ha Noi.
The deal between Viettel FC and its bitter rival ACB Ha Noi for a merge was widely expected to be realized in near future. Suddenly (as usual), ACB Ha Noi president has changed his mind at the eleventh hour. There would be no merge. The cause was not unveiled.
Viettel Telecom now have to switch to all other available options. They are said to be very willing to "sell their V-League place". And the latest name is Thanh Hoa. Thanh Hoa was relegated from V-League recently. It's reported that both sides have basically reached an agreement. However, it has not been a sure-fire deal yet. Apparently, saga keeps going and going.
