If Thailand says goodbye to the German-Brazilian strategist, it will have to look for a qualified coach to help the country’s football develop even more strongly. Many famous figures have been targeted, including former captain of the Vietnam national team, Park Hang-seo.
Recently, Thailand’s Khaosod website confirmed that Coach Park Hang-seo has given the “green light” to lead the War Elephants in the near future. Specifically, the Golden Temple newspaper published information translated by Soha:
“Coach Park Hang-seo recently confirmed his ability to negotiate to lead the Thai team. The Korean military leader expressed his willingness to sit at the negotiating table if there is a suitable offer and team building plan.
