PHUKET: Phuket United have canceled the contract of Brazilian player Rogerio Moreira and sent him back to Brazil.

Mr Suphol Senapeng, Phuket United’s head coach, told the PhuketGazette: “Rogerio was unhappy because we refused to pay for an air ticket for his wife to come to Thailand from Brazil. He didn’t want his wife to pay for the ticket herself.”

Mr Suphol said that Rogerio was no longer focused on helping Phuket United this season and he refused the offer of helping the team finish in the top five, with the team promising to pay for his wife’s air ticket if this happened.

Even though Phuket United canceled his contract, if other Thai Futsal League teams want to sign him they have to get the approval from Phuket United.

The Andaman Pearl will replace Rogerio with another Brazilian, who they hope to unveil on January 4.

Phuket United returned to their home stadium at Saphan Hin to beat Samut Sakhon Futsal Club 7-3 in a fantastic match on Wednesday December 26.

The Andaman Pearl took an early lead through Brazilian player Jardelde Andrade Apolonio in the first minute. This early setback forced Samut Sakhon into life and Natee Tusiri equalized in the 3rd minute. Samut Sakhon scored two more goals in the first half to put them 3-1 up going into half time.

Phuket United improved in the second half and two goals by Jackson Santos leveled the match. Jardel put Phuket United in front before Jackson Santos scored his third to take the score to 5-3.

The Andaman Pearl continued their relentless attack and took advantage of a power play to score their 6th. Captain Nattapon Buachay scored Phuket United’s 7th to complete a rousing comeback and show the home fans what they’ve been missing.

The Lard Yai Sunday night walking street along Thalang Road Old Phuket Town has reopened to the delight of vendors, locals and a few expats. It has been closed for 3 months after lockdowns were applied to community markets. New Provincial Governor Narong Woonchiew says he welcomes people back to the popular market. “The province and the private sector have worked hard to make sure Lardyai walking street is safe and complies with social distancing practices to regain tourists’ confidence.” Lard Yai, a fairly recent addition to Phuket’s vibrant market scene (about 4 years ago), became an instant success in […]

Two years ago – remembering Phuket’s Phoenix boat tragedy | The Thaiger

“There were 13 children that died in this disaster. Many were later found dead, floating face down, not far from their deceased parents.” On an otherwise ordinary afternoon, two tour boats, Phoenix and Serenata, were heading back to Phuket after a half day tour of snorkelling near Koh Racha. The weather forecast was for seasonal monsoonal SW winds and waves, about the usual for that time of the year. But there was also a weather warning for a storm later in the afternoon of July 5, 2018. For whatever reasons the captains of the two vessels started heading back to […]
