Footballer Teerasil Dangda talks about his humble beginnings and path to the top

Teerasil Dangda _ one of the most sought-after Thai strikers in the Thailand Premier League today _ has managed to keep himself grounded despite the fame and fortune that has come with his resounding success. At the time of this interview, the 24-year-old's latest goal, a first-half header against Chainat FC, ensured SCG Muang Thong United clinched the coveted Thailand Premier League title earlier this month. 

The Bangkok-born talent, who has played for Muang Thong for four years, has also had an impressive run of form at national level.

Making it this far in professional football for the softly spoken sporting talent has been a journey of ups and downs.
