Former Buriram United forward Jaja Coelho was officially unveiled as the new signing of Muangthong United, the club announced on Monday.

Coelho joined Buriram United from Lokeren in January 2017 on a one-year loan deal, however, the Thunder Castle decided to part ways with the striker at the end of the season.
