PHUKET: The president of the Phuket Football Club (Phuket FC) stepped down yesterday, following the team’s downgrade to Division 2.

Departing with Pramookpisitt Achariyachai will be two other key members of the management team: Tunyaratt Achariyachai, a former Phuket senator, and Team Manager Pariyawis Achariyachai.

“Our family has put more than 200 million baht into Phuket FC. Nonetheless, my management style has been highly criticized, so I think it’s best for us to part ways,” said Ms Tunyaratt.

The Achariyachai family has been running the Ronins since 2012.

“For the three years that we have managed the team, we have been abused by people for their failures. However, I’m proud of them,” Mr Pramookpisitt said.

“It takes a lot of money to keep a team like this going. I want to ask these people what they did for the team.

“Our goal was to make the people of Phuket happy. I realize that we have failed to do so and I apologize to everyone on the island for the team’s Division 2 downgrade.”

Though their management reign has ended, the Achariyachai family is still determined to bring joy to the people of Phuket.

“It is clear that team management is not an appropriate business for our family. There are many other ways we can bring happiness to our beloved island,” said Ms Tunyaratt.

New management for the now Division 2 Ronins has yet to be revealed.

Heavy rain across the country this weekend – local forecasts | The Thaiger

Heavy rain is expected across much of Thailand over the next few days, mostly as a result of the intensity of a tropical storm crossing into Vietnam today, ‘Noul’, from the South China Sea. The low pressure cell will help intensify the effects of the south west monsoon too. But the remnants of the storm won’t “slam” into Northern Thailand as one news site claimed – rather it will be a lot of rain and increased winds. The storm is expected to cross into Thailand around the Mukdahan province some time early tomorrow, Around the country, Saturday will be the […]
