Amaobi join Binh Duong
V-League 2004 top goal-scorer Amaobi Uzowuru Honest has just signed a contract with Becamex Binh Duong. The Nigerian striker is no stranger in Go Dau Stadium as he was once a member of 'Chelsea Vietnam' in 2006 and 2007.
After V-League 2009 ended, Amaobi left Nam Dinh for a trial in a Serbian top-tier club. However, he decided to return to V-League and successfully convinced Binh Duong to offer him a contract. Binh Duong was looking for an experienced striker as the club will have to compete in both V-League 2010 and AFC Cup 2010. The appearance of Amaobi means striker Marcelin Nkemi will have to find a new club because Binh Duong have made its 5 foreign players quota full.
Binh Duong also completed the deal with Vietnamese player Le Quoc Vuong. Quoc Vuong was regarded best Vietnamese central midfielder about 5 years ago. However, he was banned globally and imprisoned due to match-fixing scandal in 2005. Binh Duong head coach, Mai Duc Chung, hopes he can help Quoc Vuong find his best again.
