“Coach Ban” said, “After we knew the results of the Round of 16 draw against Yokohama F. Marinos, our team analyzed the rival team. and added players like Veerathep, Adisak and Vander Louis who returned from injury and during the Asian Cup we had warm-up games with foreign teams like Korea and China to Simulating the plan to meet Marinos, we prepared the team quite well. Of course, being able to play at home first It will be an advantage in the familiar weather conditions. which must have a score first to gain an advantage Because visiting Japan is already a difficult task. So we have to win at home first.”
“Overall, Yokohama F. Marinos has a very high standard, one of the highest in Asia. There are players with high offensive potential. The main players are still there. If anyone has followed the J-League, it can be seen that Marinos is a team that has a multi-dimensional offensive game, aggressive and dangerous. Meeting Marinos even if they change coaches. We have to play tight and defend with concentration. The team has already prepared a plan to deal with it.”

Personally, he is ready both physically and mentally. Marinos is a quality team. But we have prepared a plan well. We will fight with all our might. As for adapting to the team Now I can adapt to the team more. Many of them have played together before for both club and national team. After passing one Thai League game Relationships with teammates improved. Didn’t feel pressured. In the past, in the Asian Cup, I had the opportunity to meet high-level teams. It is already of high quality.”
