Chanathip Songkrasin revealed the limitation of Thai coach Akira Nishino

Chanathip Songkrasin shared with the media about the Thai team and coach Akira Nishino after the match in the Japan National Championship J.League 27th round.

On September 28th, the team of Chanathip, Consadole Sapporo, made a trip to the top of the Kashima Antlers club. The Thailand captain made a subtle assist and Shindo opened the scoring. However, Sapporo only earned one point.

After the match, the Thai midfielder had an interview with Japanese media. When asked about the new "Elephant War" coach, Chanathip said: "Nishino is not a very good speaker. He also has difficulty communicating with the team. During training, he often stands on the field. , rarely exchanged with the players".

The Japanese strategist started leading Thailand from the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign in Asia. After the draw with Vietnam in the opening match, "War Elephants" showed strength with a strong 3-0 victory on the field of Indonesia.

According to Siam Sport, before the match against Vietnam, coach Akira Nishino had few days to direct the players on the training ground. However, the style of play for Thailand has made a lot of difference when facing Indonesia in the next match. "War Elephants" are unbeaten in the first 2 matches when there are 4 points.

When asked about the Thai players and the way the team played, Chanathip Songkrasin said: "If talking about the Thai national team, the players who are present are of course the best. there was less time to practice together. The next match against the UAE was difficult, so we had to play more focused".

"Thai players need a desire to win. They have the skills to play football, but to play in the J.League, they need to fight more".

On 10/10, Nishino's players will have a friendly match with the Congo team, before entering the next round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the UAE.
