Coach Trang Van Thanh choked referee Ngo Duc Viet after Dong Thap lost 0-1 to Quang Ninh at the National Under-19 Football Championship finals on Monday.
Thanh thought the venality time at the end of the match was too short and didn't give his team enough tim to equalize the score.
Quang Nin only had ten men on the field after Van Tung received his second yellow card eight minutes from full time.
The tournament's organizing board had a meeting after the closing ceremony and they all agreed that referee Viet had performed his duties well and that they would report the case to the Vietnam Football Federation's penalty department.
Coach Thanh is very likely to receive a severe penalty for his violent behavior, the organizing board said.
