Worawi revamps FA of Thailand's council members

Worawi Makudi, the new Football Association of Thailand president, has appointed seven honorary council members who will act as managers for the many national squads as well as an 18-member executive board that includes 11 new faces ranging from businessmen to military personnel. "I decided to have two committee councils - the executive board and the honorary council - mainly because the person in charge of the national side will solely focus on the team and will not involve himself in administrative matters. From now on, we will run the organisation like FIFA or the AFC [Asian Football Confederation]," Worawi told The Nation. He also revealed that his predecessor Vijit has been appointed as honorary life president of the organisation.
