Myanmar national team star Aung Thu is set to rejoin Police Tero after spending a season at four-time champions Muangthong United in 2019.
Aung Thu first joined Tero on loan from his parent club, Yadanarbon, in 2018. His move to Bangkok was highly successful, as he played almost every game for the Fire Dragons and finished the season as their highest assist maker.
However, the diminutive attacker was unable to save Tero from relegation, as his form teetered out towards the end of the season.
His excellent debut campaign in Thailand was hailed as a major success of the nation’s new ASEAN quota and earned him a move to Muangthong United, one of the biggest clubs in the land. However, with competition for places incredibly high, Aung Thu was unable to settle into life at his new club. Despite drawing adoration from the fans and scoring a handful of memorable goals, his performances weren’t enough to land him a contract extension with the Kirins.
Now aged 23, a return to the Boonyachinda Stadium may be exactly what the Myanmar international needs to get back on track to reach his enormous potential. He will be reunited with coach Rangsan Viwatchaichok, under whose guidance he had the best spell of his career in the Thai League.
Tero will be looking to make a splash upon their return to the big time, and the re-signing of Aung Thu may just be the perfect ingredient to make that happen.
