Media of the Golden Temple revealed that two senior coaches, Ange Postecoglou and Mihailo Petrovic, all submitted applications to the Thai Football Federation (FAT).

The Thailand football team used to be very close to coach Akira Nishino. FAT and the Japanese coach have reached preliminary agreements. And Thailand media is booming because the team has a quality captain. However, this incident collapsed at the last minute.

According to Siam Sports, the opportunity for FAT to have coach Akira Nishino is not much because the 64-year-old coach is negotiating with the Japan Football Federation to take up the position of Technical Director. This is a familiar job for Mr. Akira Nishino and also helps him work right in Japan. Most likely, this strategist will be superhuman.

Land media of the Golden Temple is also rumored, in preparation for the loss of Akira Nishino, FAT has taken into account the appointment of Mr. Ange Postecoglou or Mihailo Petrovic as the head coach. The source confirmed that the two coaches had previously applied for a trial at the Thai football team but were rejected because of the terrible compensation.

The reason for this is because, both coach Ange Postecoglou or Mihailo Petrovic are contracting with the governing team. If one wants to have the service of one of these two coaches, FAT must spend at least 50 to 60 million baht (1.6 to 2 million USD) to buy their contracts.

Not to mention, the salary of these two strategists is not light. They became coaches of the Thai football team, FAT would have to be "steep" to spend too much fee. Also because of this should initially FAT prefer coach Akira Nishino. But, at the moment, due to the need for talented people, Thailand will most likely "bite teeth" to pay for one of these two trainers. Both are old-school coaches and have a reputation in Asia.

In the past, Ange Postecoglou coach helped South Melbourne and Brisbane Roar to win the Australian national championship. At the team level, the Australian coach also won the 2015 Asian Championship with his home football team and helped Socceroos win tickets to the 2018 World Cup. Currently, Ange Postecoglou coach is leading the Yokohama club F.Marinos.

While Mihailo Petrovic is Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo club coach, Messi Thai team, Chanathip Songkrasin. The Serbian coach helped Sanfrecce Hiroshima to win the Japanese Super Cup, won the Japanese 2nd Division and brought the Urawa Red Diamonds to the Japan League Cup championship.  These are all talented strategists. If the Thai football team chooses 1 of these 2 coaches as captain, surely their strength will be significantly raised.
