Quang Hai’s future in Pau was gradually shaped when the season only had 10 rounds left. He almost no longer contributes anything to the army of coach Didier Tholot. Hai was a substitute in the 28th round but could not be used even though the club had two substitutions. His club is only 2 points away from the relegation group.
Before the season ends, players who do not have a suitable foothold often start looking for a new place. Now is the time for Quang Hai’s new agent to work to ensure a positive change for the client next season. It is now time to go or stay in Pau of “con” Hai.
Journalist Laurent Vignasse of La Rep Des Pyrenees, the locality where Pau is stationed, is no longer as optimistic about Quang Hai as he was in July 2022. At that time, Laurent also expected about the first minutes of the player from Vietnam. After that, it’s no longer interesting. Most recently, the French journalist asked Pau’s president directly about the player dubbed “Vietnam Messi”.
Laurent asked a question about Quang Hai during a lengthy interview with President Bernard Laporte-Fray. “Do you have any regrets about the Quang Hai deal?”.
Chairman Bernard Laporte-Fray replied: “As of today, surely the things we talk about him will come from marketing influence. Quang Hai is expected to be like “Messi Vietnam” but has to do it. accustomed to a different culture, a more powerful league than the V-League. It’s not easy for Hai when he was alone, could not speak French and was learning English. Even when Hai has support, it is difficult to communicate with him. We still want Hai to increase his ability in the first team, but there are still many skills.”
In contrast, Mr. Michele Fersini, the new representative of Quang Hai, is very optimistic. In an interview with Zing News recently, he said: “I think Quang Hai’s situation is quite good. I still have faith in Quang Hai in the future. He is improving day by day, learning a lot. something that has never been experienced in Vietnam before”.
A season has almost passed and the picture Quang Hai painted in Pau is not bright. His contract runs until the summer of 2024. The prospect of the club lending or selling it is not impossible. The case of number 1 goalkeeper Alexandre Olliero is similar and different from Quang Hai. Olliero also had a year left with Pau but the club had to sell to Reims as the two reached a personal agreement.
With Quang Hai, if no team needs him or Mr. Michele Fersini still wants him to stay in Pau. Most likely, the club will lend its partner a player born in 1997 to re-filter the squad for the new season and not have to worry about paying wages. Specifically, Pau is linking up with a number of teams to make player rotation satellites. This was recently revealed by President Pau.
Mr. Bernard Laporte-Fray said: “Running a team like Pau in Ligue 2 with about 30 people costs between 1.2 and 1.5 million euros. We have investors who also own the team. They are the owner of Huesca team in La Liga 2 in Spain. We are considering Girondins de Bordeaux if they are promoted.”
Finance is a vital factor and goes along with the effectiveness of a team like Pau. They buy potential players and sell them immediately if the price is right. Quang Hai is also such a bet. Of course, not every sale is successful and profitable. Therefore, the club has to push away unplanned players in the form of loan or cooperation.
Quang Hai is playing for Pau B in the 5th division of France. It is also a temporary solution whether it is the intention of the representative or the intention of the coaching staff of the 1st team. Quang Hai has played more minutes in the 5th division than the time he played with the 1st team in Ligue 1. 2 (254 minutes after 28 rounds of Ligue 2 compared to 263 minutes after 3 games in Pau B). That shows the reality if Hai continues to stay in Pau.
