Muangthong United have announced that former Korea Republic international Yoon Jong-hwan has been appointed as the new head coach of the Thai League side.
The 46-year-old South Korean will be presented before the media during a news conference scheduled to be held on Tuesday.
Yoon previously served as the head coach of J.Leagues outfit Cerezo Osaka and left them after the end of his contract in November 2018. He has also managed other Japanese clubs including Sagan Tosu and Ulsan Hyundai and has the experience of managing in the AFC Champions League.
Pairoj Borwonwatanadilok reads resigned as the head coach of Muangthong after the club’s disastrous start to the new campaign. The Kirins are second from bottom of the table having lost five of their first seven games in the Thai domestic league.
Yoon made 40 international appearances for the Korea Republic between 1994 and 2002 and also represented clubs like Cerezo, Sagan Tosu and Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.
Muangthong suffered their fifth defeat of the season after falling prey to Nakhon Ratchasima FC 3-1 the other day.
Yoon’s first assigned as the Kirins head coach will now be a trip to table-toppers Port FC in their next league fixture on April 20.
