Man City take Thai trio on trial
Suree Sukha
Suree has been playing for Thailand since 2005
New Manchester City owner Thaksin Shinawatra has arranged for three Thailand internationals to go on trial at Eastlands next week.

The former Thailand PM pledged to give players from his homeland a chance when he took over City earlier this month.

Defenders Suree Sukha, 24, and Kiatprawut Saiwaeo, 21, and striker Teerasil Dangda, 19 were all in the Thai squad for this month's Asian Cup.

Teerasil did not feature but Kiatprawut and Suree were both in impressive form.

Thailand, who were co-hosts of the tournament, just missed out on a quarter-final place.

Worawi Makudi, president of the Thailand Football Association who recommended the trio to City, told Thai newspaper The Nation: "I believe our football standard and player ability is as good as other countries.

"The only difference is that our players have not had the opportunity as many others.

"I think the three would fare well in the trial. They are still young and have a strong desire to play in the Premier League."
