Thai Messi linked with moving to Europe like Van Hau?
Thailand’s no. 1 midfielder Chanathip Songkrasin is looking for playing in La Liga.
According to the Siam Sports, there will be another Thai star to play in Europe, Chanathip Songkrasin.
The midfielder wants to challenge himself and improve his profession by seeking new opportunities in Europe. The destination that the midfielder is eyeing is La Liga which is suitable with his playstyle.
Chanathip’s representative shares that some Spanish club sent Chanathip offers but didn’t reveal the club name. Chanathip is confident about his speed, hard-working and profession, which will help him to adapt quicker to the Spanish environment.
Right after signing the contract with J-League side Consadole Sapporo, Chanathip gradually proved his level.
It can be seen that Southeast Asian players are receiving a lot of attention in European teams in recent years. Before that, Cong Phuong or Van Hau of Vietnam had a chance to compete in Belgium or the Netherlands. With Thai football, goalkeeper Kawin is also on the payroll of Belgium's Oud-Heverlee Leuven Club. This can be considered as recognition of Western football with the outstanding development of Southeast Asian football over the past time.
