Honda eyes Melbourne move, Olympics place

Keisuke Honda named Cambodia's national team general manager

The A-League's biggest drawcard, Keisuke Honda, has picked up another job as general manager of Cambodia's national team.

However, Melbourne Victory were quick to assure fans that their star signing would not miss A-League matches, being available to Cambodia only when the competition paused for FIFA-sanctioned international dates.

Set to arrive in Melbourne during the week, Honda was unveiled in his new role at a media conference in Phnom Penh on Sunday.

The Japan World Cup star was reportedly expected to oversee the Cambodia team's campaign in South East Asia's 10-team AFF Suzuki Cup tournament, which runs between November 8 and Dec. 15.

How exactly he would go about that was unclear although the A-League said it understood Honda would hold a video conference once a week with the Cambodian team and staff from his Melbourne base.

In a surprise move, Keisuke Honda has been named as the new general manager of Cambodia's national team.

A Victory spokesman said the club was aware and supportive of Honda's negotiations with Cambodia when they signed him.

For the first time next season, the A-League is scheduled to pause for FIFA international dates.

It will break between Nov. 12 and 20 between rounds four and five -- with the Victory scheduled to play on Nov. 11 and then Nov. 25.

Honda opened a football academy in Phnom Penh in 2016.
