Head coach Velizar Popov will handle the U-23 men’s Myanmar national football squad in the upcoming 2021 South East Asian (SEA) Games in Viet Nam as Myanmar Football Federation has recently extended his contract, according to the football authorities.
“Delighted to have been offered and can confirm that I agreed to accept the proposal of the Myanmar Football Federation (MFF) to extend my contract for another year until the end of 2021”, said head coach Popov.
“We have already improved many things in technical, tactical, physical, and mental aspects during 2019, both collectively as a team and individually as the development of each player; in 2020 the pandemic has made it difficult and we couldn’t progress the way we wanted, but we’re excited about the future in 2021 and where we want to reach next year is a faraway, distant place right now, so we’ll keep trying and moving forward in order to improve more and to achieve something bigger.
Thanks to the Myanmar Football Federation (MFF) and Myanmar National League (MNL) Clubs, we will restart our preparation for all important tournaments in 2021 as SEA Games, AFC Qualifiers, and AFF Championship with Pre-Season Camp on January 10 until March 14.”, the head coach added. “To those who celebrate, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Prosperous Year 2021. Be blessed and big dream”, Popov made a special wish to the Myanmar football fans.
Velizar Popov, an experienced head coach and a UEFA Pro license holder, is currently shaping Myanmar U-23 men’s national football team to have better movements.
In the AFC Qualifiers, Popov pushed team Myanmar to secure the biggest win ever in the history of the U-23 National Team against Timor Leste by 7-0. Remarkably, in the men’s football competition of the 2019 SEA Games in the Philippines, Popov assisted team Myanmar winning the bronze medal. —Lynn Thit (Tgi)
