Focus on the academy

An article on thaileagueonline.com quotes Robert Procurer as saying that in five years time, Muangthong United will not need to sign any big name players, because they are currently developing a strong youth training system.

The obvious idea is to follow the style of Manchester United, who raised home-grown stars in the likes of Giggs, Beckham and the Neville brothers.

Robert has already begun his quest with the signing of five African youth team players.

It's great to see Muangthong giving young players a chance but I also hope to see the odd big name joining the champions, too.
