Muangthong United to extend Totchtawan Sripan’s contract

Muangthong United are reportedly drafting a new contract for their current head coach Totchtawan Sripan.

After taking charge at Muangthong on 21 January 2016, the 45-year-old went on to win the league and cup double in his first season with the club.

Totchatawan later guided Muangthong to lift 2017 Thailand Champions Cup trophy with a 5-0 win over Sukhothai.

Under Totchatawan’s leadership, Muangthong had an impressive run in the 2017 AFC Champions League by finishing runners-up of Group E with 11 points after 6 matches.

Chairman Pongsak Phol-Anan of Muangthong said: “In the 2016 season, we decided to appoint Totchtawan Sripan to lead the team and he did a great job.”

“He made history by bringing the team to win the Thai League and League Cup in the past year, as well as the 2017 Thailand Champions Cup, and led the team to the last 16 round of the 2017 AFC Champions League.”

“The board are prepared to offer a new contract for Totchtawan, but we will not disclose the salary. But we insist that it will be the largest amount of compensation in the history of Thai coaches,” Pongsak Phol-Anan added.
