Could Brazilian legend Dunga be Thailand’s next football coach?

Reports suggest that the former Brazilian national coach has submitted an application to become Kiatisak Senamuang’s replacement, following his resignation last month.

Also in the mix is former Red Star Belgrade, Ghana and Algeria manager Milovan Rajeva from Serbia. He successfully guided Ghana to the quarter finals of the 2010 World Cup.

Dunga however has managed Brazil twice and could be the front runner if reports of his application are correct.

In his spells as national coach his record is pretty good, with his stats showing as follows:

Played: 86
Won: 60
Drawn: 17
Lost: 9

Now it goes without saying that Brazil are a superior footballing nation compared to Thailand but the man does have a wealth of experience under his belt, including a World Cup winners medal as a player back in 1994.

Other candidates include Juande Ramos from Spain and Croatia’s Zlatko Dalic

The position could be rewarded by as much as 100 million baht per annum, if the Football Association of Thailand get the man they want.
