Isn’t this coach was the one who responsible in bringing Thai NT to the world’s stage? I always think Thai played better under him. And Ajcharaporn was a rising star until Thai NT was taken over by that smiling coach.
yep, it's that coach and he is married to Chinese legendary setter, Feng Kun. He also brought out such talents as Thatdao, Ajacharaporn, Chatchu-on, and Pimpichiya. I think Thailand made their highest world ranking under him at one point at #8 on FIVB's ranking. If the smiling coach was smarter, he would have also found some younger talents as well to take in and train them and not just focusing on the fab 5 every time. I think had the 2020 Asian Olympic qualifier been under the former coach, the result may not have been 3-0 in Korea's favors, but results likely would have been better even if they still lost. lol
(sorry i don't mean to say the current coach is useless, he has done some good with the NT, but he seems to have done all that he could've done and reach his peak)
