Nguyen Hoai Nam, the CEO of Berjaya Vietnam is now the proud owner of Bosnian football club FK Sarajevo.
The acquisition makes Nam the first A Vietnamese businessman to own a European football club.
Based in the capital of Bosnia – Herzegovina, the football club leads the Liga 12 with only six fixtures to go. Securing the title will vault them into the first qualifying round of next season’s UEFA Champions League. Devdiscourse.com reports.
Nam has vowed to bring Vietnam’s footballers to Europe and give them the opportunity to test themselves against the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. This will open up opportunities for young stars like Nguyen Quang Hai, Doan Van Hau and Nguyen Van Toan who helped lead the national team to glory in the AFF Cup in late 2018.
