Reports have emerged from Chonburi FC’s Asian Champions League camp that there will be no down time for the team in Japan, unlike last year.
When Chonburi got to the play-off stage last year they faced Japan’s Kashiwa Reysol. Unfortunately, when players were given some down time they took full advantage, and the coaching staff forgot the team’s jerseys.
Last year Chonburi took well credentialed Kashiwa to extra time despite only five players showing up to the first training session in Japan.
On the shirt-front, it has been reported that the Sharks had to have new jerseys made up on the day of the game after coaching staff failed to pack the kit for the trip. In 2016 the management have wisely outlawed day trips.
