Club supporters want Kiatisuk to replace Ranko Popovic at Buriram United

Kiatisuk Senamuang is anticipated to be the new boss of Buriram United after Serbia’s Ranko Popovic has resigned as coach of Thai League 1 club.

Popovic has to serve a three-month ban and a fine of 40,000 baht from The Football Association of Thailand’s (FAT) disciplinary committee, following his violent conduct in a Thai League T1 match against Bangkok United on 3 Jun.

The Serbian coach insisted that he was not guilty and said he was disappointed by the decision. However, he decided to quit as Buriram coach since he would not be able to perform his duties in the next three months.

According to Bangkok Post, as the Thunder Castle are looking for a new coach before the second half of the season begins this weekend, their fans express their desire to see former national team coach Kiatisak Senamuang sitting in the position that Popovic has left.

Kiatisak, who has been unemployed since quitting the national side in March, is now studying for a high-level coaching license in South Korea.
