Buriram United made a surprise before the AFC Champions League game by replacing Andre Moritz with Kim Seung-yong from China League One side Qingdao Hainiu.
Even though Andre Moritz has the decent pre-season performance, Buriram are not pleased. The Thunder Castle decided to release the former Crystal Palace midfielder and completed the deal of the former AFC Champions League winner, Kim Seung-yong.
Kim Seung-yong, 30-year-old South Korean winger, is an veteran of Asian football. He played in Korea with FC Seoul, Jeonbuk Hyundai, Ulsan Hyundai, in Japan with Gamba Osaka and in Australia with Central Coast Mariners.
At international level, he was capped for South Korea U-20 and U-23. Kim won the AFC U-19 Championship in 2004.
Joining Buriram is the reunion of Kim Seung-yong and Go Seul-ki since both players played together at Ulsan Hyundai and won the AFC Champions League in 2012.
