Milovan Rajevac: Thailand have taken their defensive game to another level

With no goal conceded in King’s Cup tournament, Thailand head coach Milovan Rajevac believes that his side have made steady improvement in defensive and tactical skills.

“I cannot rate it percentage wise but the team has improved in the past few months and won the King’s Cup. Thailand have taken their defensive game to another level,” said Rajevac during a team visit to a sponsor on Tuesday, as quoted by The Nation.

“We didn’t concede a goal in the last two games in the King’s Cup, which is a new dimension for Thai football. I’m satisfied with the performance of the team but there are still several areas which need to be improved,” the Serbian coach added.

After unfavorable results in the first two matches leading the War Elephants, Rajevac has led his team to four straight games without losing, including a surprising draw to the UAE in 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

His next missions are to earn a significant farewell at World Cup qualifiers with two remaining clashes against Iraq and Australia.
