Former Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Jason Brown quits his coaching job at Vietnam football academy

Former Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Jason Brown has quit his job as a goalkeeping coach at The Promotion Fund for Vietnamese Football Talent (PVF), as reported by Vietnam media outlets.

The reason for Jason’s departure has been undisclosed.

On his official Facebook page, Brown wrote in Vietnamese: “I am really sad and disappointed to parting with PVF.”

“I enjoyed every moment of working with Vietnamese coaches. They all have great qualities and will achieve a lot of success. No need to name all their names, all of them are very special to me and hope that someday I will see them again.”

“I would like to thank all the staff at PVF who helped me to get acquainted with the new environment in a positive way and to make me really feel comfortable and integrate.

“I want to thank all the players for their efforts and I wish them the best in the future.”

“Vietnam will forever be my home!”

After ending his goalkeeper career at various English clubs, including Charlton Athletic and Blackburn Rovers, Brown participated in training courses of UEFA and FA and started working as a goalkeeping coach.

In 2013-15, he took charge of keeper training for the youth teams of Wales, Millwall FC and Gillingham FC. Later in 2015, he worked with Arsenal’s U18 and U23 squads.
