Paul Murphy from thaifootie.com has been previewing the 2019 season. Here’s what he had to say about Chonburi:
Like Suphanburi, Chonburi have fallen on relatively hard times, but there are signs of promise. Since a third runner-up finish in four years in 2014, the finishing position has been dropping, reaching a low of 9thin 2018.
But with the many young talents at the club one year older, the future looks brighter, and there have been some strong looking additions to the squad. Lukian proved a reliable goal scorer with Pattaya United last year and another Brazilian striker, Patrick Cruz, comes with a decent profile.
Myanmar internationals Zaw Min Tun and Sithu Aung could make important contributions and Niran Hansson and Ekkachai Rittipan look like two decent acquisitions from within T1.
All eyes will again be on the attacking talents of Worachit Kanitsribampen who played a key role last season and the 21-year-old will look to push on and establish himself in the national side with the 2022 World Cup qualifiers on the horizon.
The squad looks to have more depth and balance than in the last couple of years and they could push themselves back into the top six.
Player to watch: Worachit Kanitsribampen
