Viera is the first foreign player of Saigon Club in the new season. Previously, this team bid farewell to two Japanese players, midfielder Daisuke Matsui, striker Hiroyuki Takasaki and Korean midfielder Woo Sang-ho. Besides, central defenders Pape Diakite (Senegal), Thiago Melo (Brazil) also parted ways with this team.

In addition, the Saigon club is also testing midfielder Ahn Byung-keon (South Korea) and striker Gustavo Santos Costa (Brazil). Both of these players have experience playing in the V.League.

Three years ago, Gustavo played 2 matches for Ho Chi Minh City club under coach Toshiya Miura. He managed to score a goal, but also left this team due to injury. This season, he returned to Vietnam thanks to his relationship with his former agent.

On the eve of V.League 2021, Saigon Club has recruited rookies such as Nguyen Viet Phong (from Viettel Club), Nguyen Quoc Long (from Hanoi Club), Nguyen Huu Son (from Quang Nam Club).

Saigon Club will face Da Nang team at Thong Nhat Stadium in the first round of V.League 2021.
