FAT officially announces Akira Nishino to be the Thailand new head coach few hours ago ahead of World Cup 2022 qualifiers and Asian Cup 2023.

This is the second time that Thailand has announced the appointment of the Japanese coach after Akira voiced to deny the first agreements with FAT last month.

Just a few hours after the draw, FAT officially announced that Akira Nishino will be the new head coach of Thailand national team and U23 Thailand.

“FAT is delight to announce that Akira Nishino will be appointed as Thailand head coach of the national team and U23 team”, FAT claims.

According to the latest news from FAT, the signing ceremony will be held in Japan on July 19. After that the press conference will be held in Thailand when Akira Nishino visits Bangkok for work.
