Than Quang Ninh players received the remaining two months’ salaries owed by the club on Thursday.

Before going to Hanoi for the V. League match against Viettel FC Friday, they had received five of the seven months’ salaries, and demanded payment of the rest to play.

Club chairman Pham Thanh Hung had promised the players the payment would be made on Thursday, and made good on it.

The amount paid was VND8 billion ($341,671) of which half came from Hung’s pocket and the rest from two sponsors the Quang Ninh Province People’s Committee had found.

The players are owed bonuses and other payments since early 2020, but Hung has promised to work with the province to find a solution.

Quang Ninh’s financial problems began before the 2021 season after their sponsor Vietnam National Coal and Mineral Industries Group withdrew.

They need VND60-70 billion ($2.6-3.03 million) a season.

The team’s head coach and many key players moved to other teams, with only a few staying back and the club having to use young players from their academy.

Despite this Quang Ninh have performed well, scoring 18 points from nine rounds to lie third in the table.

Earlier this month the players went on a strike after months without payment. On April 9 they said on their social media accounts that they would not play until the club paid them.
