FC Phuket coaches step down



PHUKET: FC Phuket’s worries continue with the announcement from club director Soranan Sanae that Sompong “Rock Rhino” Wattana resigned as head coach yesterday.

Director Soranan said “Coach Sompong still has responsibilities with the Port Authority of Thailand and hasn’t had much time to train the players. We have asked Coach Apichart “Mo” Mosika to caretake for tomorrow’s game in his place.”

Following Saturday’s game, assistant coach Mo will leave FC Phuket to take up a post as head coach for Rayong FC starting on January 8.

Apichart said “I will leave next week even though there is still one match left, but the outcome won’t affect Phuket’s survival in Division 1 anyway.”

It is not known yet who will take control of the team for Phuket’s last match of the season away to Chainat FC.

The starting line up for Saturday will be missing a few big names including Kone Adama who has already joined a new club in Myanmar. Speaking to the Gazette today Kone said, ” I have signed with Yadanarbon FC on a one-year-contract and the league starts on January 8.”

Also missing will be Jonathan Matijas who has already left Phuket and celebrates his 22nd birthday today in Bangkok.

Net minding for the last game at Surakul will be Phuket boy, Luechar Janthawong. Should Leuchar suffer an injury, remarkably it will be Abdoul Coulibaly who will deputize in the Phuket goal. Coach Apichat said “He suits the role of reserve goalkeeper best because he is the tallest.”

The remaining positions see Tameezee Hayeeyusoh with Poramat Krongborisut pairing up as the strike force. Kornphrom Charoonpong and Seksit Srisai will sit in central midfield while Niran Panthong will hold left midfield and Watcharapong Jan-ngam will attack from right midfield.

In defense, Wiratrot Chanteng and Nene Bi Tre Sylvestre will zone the center while Jongrak Pakdee and Suphat Aonthong will secure the left and right flanks respectively.

Although FC Phuket has not been sold, should Muangthong United take control eight current players will go with the team including Tameezee Hayeeyusoh,Watcharapong Jun-ngam, Poramat Krongborisut, Seksit Srisai, Sarach Yooyen, Kornphrom Charoonpong, Niran Panthong and Suphat Aonthong.

Kick-off for Saturday’s match, Phuket’s final home fixture of the season, will be at 6pm at Surakul stadium.
