Weigang had vast experience in coaching international football, having managed the likes of Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Mali, Ghana and Gabon over a career that spanned more than half a century. However, he is best remembered for his time with Malaysia in the early 1980s, when he led the national team to qualify for the 1980 Olympic Games. He was also a popular figure in the Malaysian league, where he had some domestic success over his multiple stints with Perak, the last being his role as coach and technical advisor in 2016.
As national coach, Weigang guided Malaysia to qualify for the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games as group leaders, although the country eventually boycotted the Games that year in protest of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
Weigang had a contract with Perak until June 2017, but was "rested" since February as he left for Germany for an eye surgery and a football course. He died of a heart attack there on 12 June 2017, at the age of 81.
