BANGKOK (16 June 2019) – Sirisak Yodyardthai has quit as the caretaker coach of the Thai national team following the team’s dismal showing at the recent King’s Cup.
Hosts Thailand, who have won the King’s Cup for a record 15th time since its inception in 1968, finished fourth in the four-team meet this year.
They lost their opening game against Vietnam before conceding a defeat to India in the battle for third place.
“I want to stop my role as the national coach and give an opportunity for somebody else with proper ability to help develop the team,” said Sirisak.
“I’ve been proud to perform my duty for my country but I’m disappointed that I was unable to help the team win the King’s Cup.”
