7 naturalized players plan to take VFF to court
Seven Vietnamese naturalized players including:
Dinh Hoang La and Dinh Hoang Max (Vissai Ninh Binh)
Doan Van Sakda and Doan Van Nirut (HAGL)
Tran Le Martin and Phan Le Isaac (Hoa Phat Ha Noi)
Phan Van Santos (GDT Long An)
are planning to bring the issue to court if VFF decides to make its new V-League rule official. Their lawyers believe the new rule would be a violation of civil rights and they are ready to bring the case to civil court and FIFA as well. However they are still waiting for a response from VFF and always looking to settle down.
If the case happens, VFF will not have much chance to win and Vietnam football could face an international ban from FIFA.
