I'M COMING HOME! 'Myanmar Ronaldo' leave Thai League after 2 years

After 2 years playing decently in the Thai League, Aung Thu has returned to his parent club, starting from next season.

Aung Thu joined Yadanarbon since 2013. He then had 5 seasons rising through the ranks of the teams, conducting good performances consistently. After 58 appearances at the club, Burmese CR7 managed to find the net 24 times and involved crucially in the team’s attacking style of play.

The Myanmar international striker then had 2 seasons on loan at Thai League. In 2018, he signed for the club Police Tero for a one-year loan contract. In his 31 games, he scored 11 goals, won the April Player of the Month award and be the key star of the team as they finished 15th out of 18 teams.

The impressive performance helped him secure a move to Muangthong United. With other quality attacking team-mates, Aung Thu can only participate in 13 matches, scoring 3 goals.

Minimum game-time is what hinders Aung Thu talent, which leads to a move back home to Yadanarbon as the club announced their new owner of the 99 number on their Facebook page.

Many fans have shared their welcoming message to the news. They understand the situation of Muangthong United, as not only Aung Thu but also the Thailand international Teerasil Dangda didn’t have a chance to perform on the field.

Aung Thu will certainly help out his club at the chance of battling out for the Myanmar National League against tough opponents like the champion Shan United, Ayeyawady United or Yangon United.
