Sierra Leone and former Seattle Sounders Academy star, Victor Mansaray could make his V-League debut with Becamex Binh Duong FC today (February 21) when they take on Thanh Hoa in Vietnam’s top division.
The 22-year-old is said to have signed a short-term contract with the Vietnamese club who are allowed to register only four foreign players.
