Previously there were various information flows around the meeting of these 4 stars to recruit Thai. But with this official move almost four will be absent in the AFF Cup.
Many believe that Thailand has accepted the four big stars at the AFF Cup to attend the Asian Cup in 2019 – the main Thai league tournament after the AFF Cup only a few dozen days.
The absence of "Messi Thai" Chanathip or hitman Dangda will make the strength of the recruits of Thailand serious. This is also a great opportunity for rivals in the region, including the Vietnam coach from Park Hang-seo.
Thailand is currently the champion in the last two AFF Cups (2014 and 2016). At the AFF Cup this time, the Thai team in group B together with Singapore, Indonesia, Timor-Leste and the Philippines.
