Chonburi FC has finally announced the new head coach of the club, Therdsak Chaiman, the veteran player of the team. The club vice-president, Annop Singtothong revealed the details.
“Therdsak has the experience as the assistant of Chonburi for 3 years. He supported Wittaya Laohakul in 2013, Masahiro Wada in 2014 and Jadet Meelarp in 2015. Therdsak proves himself that he is good enough to be the head coach. It is for the development and the long-term structure of Chonburi FC.” said Annop.
“We have AFC Champion League play-off on February 2 as Thailand representative. We have just less time for preparation. A foreigner might not be familiar with the players and squad. It may cost several months of learning.”
“With that reason, we decided to appoint Therdsak who has been with the club for a long time as the new head coach. Chonburi fans, please support him and keep cheering our team.”
Therdsak Chaiman, 42, rejoined Chonburi as the player in 2010. He played 108 games and scored 40 goals for the club. He previously spent several years in Singapore with Singapore Armed Forces. His highest career achievement was in 2003 when he reached the final of AFC Champions League with BEC Tero and claimed the MVP of the competition.
