There has been a wave of criticism against coach Mano Polking, saying that Thailand going to the continental playground and trusting coach Polking is a mistake!
Most Thai fans say that coach Mano Polking only plays at the level of Southeast Asia, but stepping outside the Southeast Asian playground is a “blackout”. They cited that since coach Polking led the Thai team to play two AFF Cup tournaments (2021 and 2022) both won the championship, but mixed with those tournaments were friendly tournaments, King’s Cup, single international friendly matches, Thailand Lan completely lost.
Now preparing to play the second match of the 2026 World Cup qualifying round, the Thai team comes to Singapore as a guest and the Thai people are worried about even playing against lower-ranked opponents.
While the Thai people were afraid, coach Polking said, “Singapore is not weak, their playing style is very annoying, there are stars like brothers Irfan and Ikhsan Fandi Ahmad who are playing very prominently in the Pathum Utd shirt!”.
Thai players in the Pathum Utd club shirt such as Chanathip, Thitiphan, Yooyen also followed their teacher, warning the home team’s defense to pay attention to the Fandi brothers Irfan and Ikhsan.
Obviously, coach Polking and his team are now in a situation where “birds are afraid of bent branches” after losing to China at home on the evening of November 16, and now Singapore is also afraid.
The Thai team was criticized and doubted a lot after their training trip in Europe lost face, causing the players to lose confidence. Thai fans have come up with many plans such as replacing the coach and even replacing the entire Thai Football Federation.
Thai football is really confusing now!
