Theerathon Bunmathan and Yokohama F Marinos witnessed a successful year at the 2019 J.League 1. The Thai international player was voted in the Best XI by football experts.

Experts in Soccer Digest, a Japanese football magazine named Theerathon into Best XI of 2019 J League 1. It is not a surprise when Theerathon was voted into the squad.

Currently, Theerathon is the first choice for the left-back position in the 4-2-3-1 formation. He is voted to play alongside "Messi of Japan" Takefusa Kubo, the former player of FC Tokyo.

After playing at the 2019 J.League 1 for six months, Kubo signed with the Spanish club Real Madrid. Experts said Theerathon and Kubo can be a very good duo in the left-wing if they play together in a team.

However, J.League organizers do not think the same thing. Consequently, they voted Sei Muroya, Masato Morishige, and Thiago Martins for the best defenders.

Two of them are the central defenders of the runner-up team FC Tokyo. On the other hand, Vissel Kobe's Andres Iniesta is also named into the Best XI even though he missed ten games in the tournament.
