Luong Xuan Truong has chances to stay at Buriram United

Luong Xuan Truong has chances to stay at Buriram United

The regulation of foreign players in Thai League can help Luong Xuan Truong stay in Buriram United, but his chances of going to the field will not be much.

Buriram United loaned Luong Xuan Truong from Hoang Anh Gia Lai for one season. In the summer transfer period, the Thai League champions suddenly added the Filipino midfielder to South East Asia players. This seriously threatens the future of Xuan Truong.

The new name to the Thunder Castle is Kevin Ingreso, a Filipino-born midfielder but born in Hamburg (Germany). In total, Buriram United has four names from Southeast Asia, including three Filipino players.

Many people believe that Buriram Untied will have to push a South East Asian foreign soldier away, and that person is the Xuan Truong. The reason is that Vietnamese players do not have many opportunities to play and have little contribution during the season. He has only 4 main matches and 2 times to substitute for a goal.

Even Xuan Truong could not register to compete in the 4-1 win over Lampang FC in the Thai League Cup. It was also the day that Buriram United launched the rookie Ingreso. The move caused many people to worry about Xuan Truong.

According to the rules of the Thai League 2019, each team can launch a maximum of 3 players from ASEAN countries. However, Thai League does not limit the number of registered South East Asian players. It is also a fragile hope for Xuan Truong to stay.

Thai League chief executive Benjamin Tan shared with “Clubs have the right to register an unlimited number of Southeast Asian foreign soldiers, but only use at most 3 people in a match. Besides, they can use an Asian foreigner and three other players outside of Asia.

Thus, in a match in Thai League, teams can launch up to 7 foreign players on the field at the same time. However, the opportunity is less and less with Xuan Truong, the previous competition is inherently difficult.

The transfer market in Thailand will officially open from June 24th and close on July 19th. Meanwhile, in Vietnam, the summer transfer window has been open since June 11th and will end on July 8th. If unable to compete in Buriram, Xuan Truong can return to HAGL.
