Thai referee Teetichai Nualjan has been offered to officiate an important V.League match between struggling teams Long An and Hoang Anh Gia Lai on August 17, according to local newspapers.
Teetichai Nualjan will be the second Thai referee to officiate a V.League match. Last season, his compatriot Mongkolchai Pechsri officiated Becamex Binh Duong’s 5-2 victory against FLC Thanh Hoa.
Along with Teetichai Nualjan, Japanese referee Takuto Okabe has also been invited to officiate a match between championship hopefuls Hai Phong and FLC Thanh Hoa on August 21.
Last season, Okabe officiated a match between Hanoi T&T and Becamex Binh Duong, where he received criticism from both teams’ managers.
