Former Japan football's head coach Akira Nishino has been appointed as the new Thailand national football team coach has been. Let us review his biography and honoured career uptil now.

Akira Nishino is no stranger to Asian football fans, he used to join the Japanese team until the round of World Cup 2018 with a very disciplined play.

After parting with Milovan Rajevac due to the poor performance of AFF Cup to Indian front salt defeat at the Asian Cup, the Thai Football Federation (FAT) chose Sirisak Yodyardthai to sit in the hot seat in the Thai national team.

Although Sirisak's "War Elephant" still reached the 1/8 round of the tournament in the UAE in January, but it is undeniable that this is the faintest Thai team after many years. Especially at the King's Cup, the tournament where the Thai suffered defeat against the Vietnamese rivals, then lost to India and the final position.

The miserable headache chain is too long with the great self-esteem of Thailang football. They contacted many prominent and prominent strategists such as Mihailo Petrovic, who led Consadole Sapporo in J.League. But then, FAT brought Akira Nishino, the famous coach who led the Japanese team to play very successfully in the 2018 World Cup.

Akira Nishino was born in 1955 in Saitama Prefecture, Japan. He started his career at Wasebe University team, then was recruited by Hitachi (Kashiwa Reysol's predecessor). Here, Nishino spent 12 years in Tokyo's Kodaira team and was elected to the representative line of J.League in the 1986 season.

Leaving the grass field in 1990 at the age of 35, Akira Nishino moved to lead the U-20 and then to Japan U23 before returning to power in the club he used to devote his career to Kashiwa Reysol (Hitachi rename).

However, the peak of his career must take 10 years to work with giant Gamba Osaka. In 2005, he brought Gamba Osaka to the J-League 1 championship in 2005. Three years later, together they continue to conquer the peak in the AFC Champions League 2007/2008. With that achievement, Nishino was voted the Best Coach in 2008 by the Asian Football Federation (AFC).

Later, he briefly led Vissel Kobe and Nagoya Grampus (Arsene Wenger coach club who worked before coming to Arsenal). The turning point for Akira Nishino until the Japan Football Federation (JFA) decided to fire manager Vahid Halilhodzic just two months before the World Cup.

Nishino then bravely agreed to sit in the hot seat of the Japanese national team. With just over 60 working days, he helped "Green Samurai" resonate at the biggest football festival in the world. Japan has had a second time in history to qualify for the World Cup qualifier, even almost always in Belgium for the eighth round (2 goals ahead).

However, he only signed a three-month contract with JFA. Farewell to the Japanese team right after the World Cup, Akira Nishino did not receive any offers until he suddenly agreed to take the "War Elephant."
