“Let the Thai team call new stars or even a new generation. This will help the Thai team have more and more experienced players in international matches. From there, the team’s coaches. there are more options in the future”, Siam Sport quoted Mr. Somyot.
“I want young players to be given more opportunities in tournaments in Southeast Asia. This is the foundation for them to play well in international matches. This also makes achievements may not be achieved. as expected, but it helps the national team,” the FAT president shared.
According to Mr. Somyot, the plan to use many young players in regional tournaments is reasonable. The reason is that Southeast Asian tournaments are often held outside of FIFA Days, so if you call the best players, the quality of the professional tournament will be affected. At the same time, important players in the team and club will have to work a lot, affecting their ability to recover.

In addition, the Thai team may lose 4 more players Narubadin Weerawatnodom, Supachai Chaided, Suphanat Mueanta and Ratthanakorn Maikami. Buriram United plans to send this group of players to train at Leicester City in December after the first leg of the 2022/23 Thai League is over.
Therefore, the Thai team can use many young and new players in the AFF Cup 2022.
