Thailand's new coach arrives

Thailand’s new football coach Milovan Rajevac arrived in the Kingdom yesterday but declined to comment on his new role, preferring to wait until the official press conference later today.

The sixty-three-year-old Serbian, flew into Bangkok on Qatar Airlines, with three others, who are reportedly his assistant, goalkeeping and fitness coaches.

Rajevac, whose salary has not been declared by the Thai Football Association, is believed to be on a one year rolling contract. Rumours are that he will earn around 1.5 million baht per month however.

The Serb and his staff, will observe the match between Muangthong United and Navy in the capital on Saturday, before taking in the Buriram United game with Ratchaburi.

Rajevac has been around a long time but undoubtedly his biggest claim to fame was taking Ghana to the 2010 World Cup quarter-final stages, where they were knocked out by Uruguay in a penalty shoot out. The match featured a controversial moment, deep into extra-time, when Luis Suarez hand-balled on the goal line, preventing, what would have been the winning goal for the Ghanaians.

Only time will prove if he is the right man for the Thai job but “Love Pattaya” would like to wish Milovan a prosperous time in charge of the national side.
