Mass exodus as three Thai League teams are now without a manager

Somchai Makmool is the latest head coach to be without a job in Thai League, as Sukhothai FC decided to part way with the manager after just five games of Thai League. The club technical director, Songdech Samerkam is appointed as the interim.

After a successful season in the last year, the 2016 FA Cup co-winner has the bad start in 2017 season with just 3 points from five games. The board decided to make a change in order to avoid the relegation in this year.

Chalermwoot Sa-ngapol has also resigned from his position as head coach of Super Power FC as of yesterday. English manager Jason Withe is appointed as the new head coach, while Chalermwoot will remain as one of the coaching staff. Super Power is lying in the bottom of the table with just only one point from 5 games.

Previously, Sisaket FC of Thai League has also dismissed Dusit Chalermsan from head coach position. The former national team defender was removed from his position due to the bad start that downed the club to the rock bottom.

The 46-year-old Thai national legend just took a charge at Sisaket FC in the pre-season of 2017. Despite the expectation from the board, Sisaket under his coaching lost all of the three first games in this season and is currently in the last place of the table.

The Koupreys conceded 11 goals in three matches and net only one. With the current performance, the club is at the risk of the relegation after seven years in the top league of Thailand.
