BANGKOK (21 July 2013) – Winfried Schaefer has decided to leave Muang Thong United for the Jamaican national team.
The German had signed up with the Thai Premier League champions on the short-term after parting ways with the FA of Thailand (FAT).
“After a few nice weeks with Muang Thong my adventure in Thailand comes finally to an end,” read a post on the German’s Facebook page.
“Like I told you before I stayed with Muang Thong as a friend, I have helped them to bring the team back on track. That mission was successful; everyone who watched the last few games saw a team full of confidence, inspired by team spirit and a strong will to success. In the future we can expect a lot of them.”
“Now there is another great task for me. I will coach the national team of Jamaica for a while. We still have a small chance to qualify for the World Cup in Brazil.”
