Bryan Robson is in the frame to success Peter Reid as coach to Thailand’s national team.
Reid left the post this week after completing a one-year contract and has joined up with Stoke City as assistant manager to Tony Pulis.
A former manager of West Brom and Middlesbrough, Robson has been out of the game since leaving Sheffield United 19 months ago.
Should he take the job, Robson won’t have long to get to know his new charges as Thailand face back-to-back Asian Cup qualifiers in November.
Speaking to the Bangkok Post, Worawi Makudi of the Thai Football Association said:
He is interested. I think the chances of him taking the job are more than 50%.
Everything should be finalised by next week. We want him to come here next month so that he can watch some Thai Premier League matches in the final weeks of the season.
