Withe Thai Return?
Thai FA head Worawi Mukadi has hinted that former national team coach Peter Withe could be considered to replace Bryan Robson who stepped down earlier this week for health reasons. Withe is currently without a job and was very successful during his last spell with the club.
Mind you Mukadi, in an unusually perceptive moment said that Thai fans wanted a Thai coach. Thai fans also want his ouster but he has said nothing about that!
Could former Vietnam national coach Henrique Calisto also be in the frame? He led Vietnam to AFF Cup glory against Thailand in 2008 and is now coaching Muang Thong United in the Thai Premier League.
Given that when Vietnam recently scouted round for a new coach and attracted over 100 applicants the Thai FA can expect to be busy over the next few days sifting through applications from around the world.
