Thailand club in dark about trio trialling at Man City

The club owners of three Thai national team players still have no idea whether the trio will head for a trial at English Premier League club Manchester City. Forward Teerasil Daengda, centre-back Kiatprawut Saiwaeo and right back Suree Sukha have been picked by the Football Association of Thailand to train at Man City, following former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra's takeover of the Sky Blues. However, Chon Buri club, where Kiatprawut and Suree are under contract, has yet to receive any information on the matter.

"I still don't know the details such as when or how long is their trip. I think this isn't right because if they are really going there, they should formally inform us first, and not do it like this," Withaya Khunpreum, the club Presdient told The Nation. "On the first day when the news appeared, I called the FAT president who has been on a trip to China. He couldn't give me any details. Till today, nobody had contacted me. The only way I am learning about the story is from the ewspapers. The players are under contract to us and we have a commitment with our sponsors so anything that happens with the players should be done through the club."

"We're ready to support them as long as the trip really benefits them. The objective of this trip must be concrete. If the trial is worthless, it is useless to send the players there. We still have another option in supporting our players to play in foreign leagues," Withaya said.
