Vietnam coach Hung resigns

The head coach of Vietnam has resigned after a disappointing performance at the Suzuki Cup.

Phan Thanh Hung stepped down on Wednesday, taking responsibility for the poor showing at the ongoing competition between South-East Asian national teams.

Vietnam lost to Thailand and the Philippines and drew with Myanmar, failing to reach the knockout stages.

Hung, the first local coach of the national team since 1993, had been on the job since March.

His predecessor, German Falko Goetz, was fired in January for the team's poor results at the South-East Asian Games in Indonesia last year.
