Paulo Victor explains that the departure of Leonardo Vitorino, who brought him to Phnom Penh Crown, won’t affect his commitment to the club.

Leonardo Vitorino left Phnom Penh Crown on Tuesday after taking charge of Phnom Penh Crown’s six Metfone Cambodian League matches, and assistant head coach Sum Vanna was then announced as the club’s caretaker manager.

Paulo Victor, who netted a stunning winner against Asia Euro United in the Red Singha’s previous home match, has pointed out that all his four league goals came from teamwork.

Phnom Penh Crown entertain G.C National Police at the Smart RSN Stadium this Sunday, with the Brazilian forward, who missed last week’s match against Nagaworld due to suspension, is hopeful to write his name on the scoresheet again.

“Of course not, I am a professional player, and in the same way I respect it,” the No. 77 told

“I will respect my new coach and continue my commitment to Phnom Penh Crown.

“I think it’s an important game [against G.C National Police] for us, so we need to be focused to produce a good game.

“For me all the games, I want to win, and all the games are important. I hope that this time we can come out with a victory.

“I will dedicate myself and give my all on the field so that we can get the victory that is the most important thing. The goals are the consequence of all our teamwork, but if I score, I will be happy.”

Phnom Penh Crown have picked up only a win from their three league matches at home, and three points from this Sunday’s clash with G.C National Police could move them from tenth place to seventh in the Metfone Cambodian League table.
