Kawin signs with Consadole Sapporo ... to sit on the bench AGAIN?
In contrast to Chanathip Songkrasin, the possibility that goalkeeper Kawin wins a regular place in the starting lineup is very small.
Kawin Thamsatchanan, who had almost had a chance to play for Manchester United, has decided to sign with the J1 League club Consadole Sapporo.
He becomes teammate with his fellow countryman Chanathip Songkrasin after failing to prove himself at Belgian club OH Leuven. Since Kawin has not played regularly in recent years, Kawin lost his place in the national football team.
He even disappointed people when he had the opportunity to play in the starting lineup, making a mistake that Thailand lost to Vietnam in the 2019 King's Cup.
As a result, he left Europe to save his professional career, and Consadole Sapporo is the next destination. However, things may not be as good as he expected. Unlike Chanathip, the possibility of Kawin playing regularly in the J1 League is very small.
At the moment, Consadole Sapporo's number one goalkeeper is Gu Sung Yun, who also represents the South Korean team. He is currently the highest-paid player at the club, receiving 60,000,000 JPY a year, twice as much as Chanathip.
In the last three seasons, he lost only 2 games in the J1 League. In other words, the choice of Consadole Sapporo may not be a good choice for Kawin when he rarely has the chance to play unless Gu Sung Yun suffers from injuries.
