Who doesn’t love a very good switch saga?
Whereas it might really feel like soccer is now a 24/7, 365 day a yr sport, there are in actual fact lulls within the stunning recreation’s calendar.
Switch intrigue can typically be an effective way to fill within the interminable gaps between actual soccer matches however the saga centred round Vietnamese soccer on the minute is one I may do with out.
Nguyễn Quang Hải left Hà Nội FC again in April, ostensibly to signal for a European membership, and but as June attracts to an in depth, he nonetheless stays unsigned.
Over the previous few months numerous retailers have reported that the pint-sized playmaker is near signing with Austrian, Swiss and now French golf equipment.
Hải has been linked with a minimum of 4 golf equipment within the latter nation’s Ligue 2, with breathless experiences noting that he has his visa and is simply awaiting a medical checkup.
Once more, switch sagas might be nice leisure, however this must be the strangest I’ve ever witnessed and admittedly, the leisure has lengthy since been changed by trepidation.
Usually, it turns into clear fairly early on the place a participant goes to once they’re concerned in a switch saga. For instance in the summertime of 2013 it was a nailed on certainty that Gareth Bale was swapping Tottenham for Madrid, the transfer simply dragged out.
Whereas with Việt Nam’s finest participant, his vacation spot appears to alter each two weeks and one is left with the impression that every one the ‘information’ about his switch is coming from Hải’s camp, not from golf equipment falling over themselves to signal him.
I worry these are indicators of an try and drum up extra curiosity within the participant from his representatives and such shenanigans not often assist a participant, for a few causes.
For one factor, the Ligue 2 season kicks off on July 30, nearly a month from now. That’s not an terrible lot of time for Hải to get match match, get acclimated to his new setting and win a beginning place, so daily he delays lessens his probabilities of success.
As well as, delaying and creating headline after headline solely ramps up the strain on Hải, not that this was ever going to be a pressure-free transfer.
As the very best participant of this golden era for Vietnamese soccer, the highlight on Hải was all the time going to be turned as much as 11 when he moved overseas. So I can’t determine why his representatives would do something to extend that strain.
Right here’s hoping I’m made to look a idiot in a short time and Hải settles in comfortably and proves himself too good for France’s second tier, however I worry that is one switch saga few will look again upon fondly. VNS
