Thai Premier League club Pattaya United could be up for sale if they are relegated, manager Sombat Pinyasiri said on Tuesday.
The Blue Dolphins are on the verge of going down to League One with one match to go in the TPL season.
To stay up in the top flight, they must win at Insee Police United on Sunday and hope other results go their way.
Pattaya were dealt a hammer blow last weekend when they lost 1-0 at home to Chiang Rai United who scored the winner from the spot. With the result, Chiang Rai will remain in the TPL next season.
Pattaya fans ran riot after the match as they believed referee Nitipoom Kulbut was biased.
The TPL yesterday insisted that the referee was correct in awarding Chiang Rai the penalty and handed Pattaya a fine of 100,000 baht for the incident.
Sombat admitted that Pattaya only had a slim chance of survival. He said club chairman Itthipol Khunpluem had told him that if Pattaya were demoted he may dissolve the team, merge them with Chonburi or put them up for sale.
