Kosin Hathairattanakool, Ex Persib Bandung Goalkeeper Leads the Clean Sheet Record in Thailand League

The ex-Persib Bandung goalkeeper, Sinthaweechai “Kosin” Hathairattanakool, is leading the clean sheet record in this season’s Thai League T1. Kosin, who plays for Suphanburi FC, already boasted five clean sheets in seven matches. He added this impressive record with only one defeat from all of the matches he played.

Kosin really stepped up his game after being touted as the captain of Suphanburi. Moreover, the 180 cm goalkeeper only conceded three goals, which all of the goals conceded in only two games.

Two first goals that conceded his goal were when Suphanburi drew against Bangkok United in the third gameweek. Kosin was conceded by Robson Fernandes and Sumanya Purisay, who scored a sublime free-kick on that match. The game ended 2-2 after Suphanburi leveled up from Romulo and own goal by Mika Chunuonsee.

Another goal that was conceded by Kosin was scored by Kroekrit Thaweekarn when Suphanburi lost against Chonburi FC on the fourth gameweek. This match also brought two of Liga 1 goal scorers, Sylvano Comvalius who plays for Suphanburi and Marclei Santos on the other side.

Looking inside his records, Kosin made two consecutive clean sheets on the first two matches and the last three he got on the last three matches with Suphanburi, against Navy FC (0-0), Chiangrai United (2-0), and Police Tero FC (2-0).

Kosin played a big part in Suphanburi success this season, with the club currently sit on the sixth place in the table. Suphanburi is also the least conceded team in Thai League 1 2018.

However, Suphanburi is not really good offensively. So far, they only scored seven goals, and this record makes them as the least scoring team on the big six. In addition, Chainat FC (9 goals) and Police Tero FC (8 goals), scored more than Suphanburi.

The 36-year-old played with Chonburi since 2007, right after he finished his contract with Persib on first spell. However, he came back to Persib in 2009 on second spell as a loanee for six months and then back to Chonburi again until 2015. At 2016, legendary goalkeeper of Thailand national team join with Suphanburi until now.
