Suffering from a thigh injury while playing in the J-League, Chanathip Songkrasin was unable to participate in the friendly matches of Thailand at FIFA Days in June. Most likely “Messi Thailand” will only promptly recovered when “War Elephants” entered the 2023 ASIAN Cup qualifiers.
In an interview with SiamSport, Chanathip set a goal for himself in 2022: “I want to gradually recover from the injury as patiently as possible. Hopefully I will return to play soon and help Kawasaki Frontale continue to compete for the J-League championship this season.
However, my biggest goal is to attend and defend the championship AFF Cup 2022 with Thailand at the end of this year. Considering that I have not been able to return to the team for almost a year because of injury, after the 2023 ASIAN Cup qualifiers, only the AFF Cup is the only arena.”
Chanathip wants to win the AFF Cup with Thailand in 2022
With reports from the medical team of Kawasaki Frontale Club, Chanathip’s injury is making good progress when it has entered the recovery phase for 2 weeks. It is expected that “Thai Messi” will be able to return to normal training and competition in mid-June this year.
As the only SEA team to qualify for the third qualifying round of the 2022 World Cup, Vietnam Tel will not have to attend the third qualifying round of the 2023 ASIAN Cup like Thailand. Therefore, the only tournament of the “Golden Dragon” of the year is the AFF Cup 2022. This is also the arena that Coach Park Hang Seo aims to win when he lost to Thailand in the semi-finals of 2021:
“My goal from now to the end of the year is to reclaim the AFF Cup from Thailand. The Vietnamese team lost to them in the semi-finals last year and my ambition is to reclaim this title. It is also my main task after I no longer lead the U23 team.”
