Vietnam coach's kidney transplant "successful"

Vietnamese media reported that national team coach Austrian Alfred Riedl had undergone a successful kidney transplant on Wednesday in Vienna, Austria. AFCMedia said a Vietnamese, whose name was withheld, was the donor and the coach was recovering well. Riedl is expected to return to Vietnam early April at the end of his 70-day leave and help the team prepare for the AFC Asian Cup 200 for which they have been slotted against defending champions Japan, Qatar and the UAE in Group B.
