Thai tactician Kiatisuk Senamuang, who stands behind HAGL’s exceptional results, was again voted as the Manager of the Month. Under his dynasty, the team have been showing significant progress and brilliant form in the nation’s top-tier league.

Meanwhile, HAGL forward Nguyen Van Toan continued to be named the best player of April. He is now joining Teofilo Soares Eydison (Quang Ninh Coal), Oussou Konan (Nam Dinh FC) and Nguyen Tien Linh (Becamex Binh Duong) to lead the V.League 1’s scoring chart with six goals for each.

In addition, HAGL midfielder Luong Xuan Truong claimed the “Best Goal” prize with a beautiful curler toward the top left corner from about 25 metres in their Round 10 home clash against former champions Hanoi FC on April 18.

Moreover, the victory has made Kiatisuk’s side the first team to be guaranteed a place in the first phase’s top six who will compete for the title in the second phase.
