HANOI: Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs attended the inaugural ceremony for Vietnam's youth football training centre under the promotion fund of Vietnamese Football Talents (PVF) as the organisation's new technical director, China's Xinhua news agency reported.
Another Manchester United legend, former midfielder Paul Scholes, also attended the ceremony in the northern province of Hung Yen.
According to a contract signed with PVF, a Vietnamese non-governmental and non-profit organisation, Giggs is supposed to turn the PVF's new facility in the province into Vietnam's leading youth football training centre.
At the ceremony, Giggs said he would help PVF train local coaches and nourish local young football players so that Vietnam's national squad can win a berth in the 2030 World Cup.
Many local football fans said they wanted Paul Scholes to become Vietnam's tourism ambassador soon. - Bernama
