“Our aim is to finish in the top five of Thailand’s Futsal League, even though we are a new team this season.
“The team is improving tactically, and we are doing fitness training for Thai and foreign players everyday. Phuket United will be ready for the kick off with Surat Thani.
” I hope the fans support our team forever. We work hard for the fans, for the club, for everyone,” he said.
The match will be played at Surat Thani’s 4,000 seat Indoor Sports Complex tomorrow at 6pm.
