SCG Muangthong United striker Wuttichai Tatong recognizes that the match this Saturday is shaping up to be a good battle, and that to come out of this with 3 points would be a major boost for MTUTD.
Suphanburi FC is relatively new to the Thai Premier League. The club itself was established in 1998, and though they had a season in the top level back in 2007, they were quickly relegated back to Division 1. It wasn’t until 2012 that they made their presence felt, with a 4th place finish after being promoted. Since then the club has stayed in the top 10, and are currently tied with Muangthong United for 3rd place, with a slightly better goal difference.
“They are a stronger team this season, and this will be a quality game, for sure,” said Wuttichai about the upcoming match in Suphanburi.
Suphanburi strengthened their roster by acquiring Spanish player Carmelo Gonzalez from last year’s champions Buriram. Gonzalez who was a top goal scorer for Buriram with 35, scoring in almost every game that he played. So far this season he’s netted 1 goal in 4 appearances. Luiz, their Brazilian striker, has 2 goals, and Thai midfielder Pornsai leads with 4 goals.
Suphanburi also acquired the very popular midfielder Charyl Chappuis. Born in Switzerland to a Swiss father and Thai mother, he played for all the Swiss National teams and joined the Swiss Super League Club The Grasshoppers. In 2013 he joined Buriram, and was then loaned out to Suphanburi, which is where he has stayed ever since.
