The Vietnamese Golden Ball 2019 is becoming attractive as its organization board – Sài Gòn Giải Phóng Newspaper – has announced Top 5 of the award categories.
Vietnamese Golden Ball 2019 award is presented by Sài Gòn Giải Phóng Newspaper, voted by delegates including football specialists, head coaches of national teams; captains of V-League clubs, women teams, and of futsal teams; journalists representing for the press and media nationwide.
After several days waiting, the shortlist of the categories of this honoring award is finally confirmed. Accordingly, 5 nominees of the Golden Ball for men include Đỗ Hùng Dũng (Hanoi FC), Nguyễn Quang Hải (Hanoi FC), Đoàn Văn Hậu (Heerenveen SC), Nguyễn Trọng Hoàng (Viettel FC), and Nguyễn Văn Quyết (Hanoi FC). With the great performance in the previous season, it is not surprising as these players appear in the Top 5. In this shortlist, Nguyễn Văn Quyết is said to be inferior to the others. Although he shined in Hanoi FC kit (top scorer of the club in 2019 season), his impression in national team is not very good. Meanwhile, Văn Hậu, Trong Hoàng, Hùng Dũng and Quang Hải played well for both national teams and their club. Especially, these 4 players had a great contribution to gain the the historic SEA Games gold medal in Philippines.
Hải “short” is high evaluated
