Thai League 1 front-runners Port yesterday dropped a bombshell, announcing the termination of their coach Choketawee Promrut's contract.

The decision, taken at an executive committee meeting of the top-flight club yesterday, also affects members of Choketawee's entire coaching team.

Port team president Nualphan Lamsam said former coach Jadet Meelarp will take over the reins of the team once again.

"We had a talk with coach Choketawee and his staff and both sides mutually agreed to end the contract with immediate effect," said Nualphan.

"Myself and everyone at the club would like to express our sincere thanks to Choketawee and his staff for the hard work they put in over the past eight months.

"As the Port chairperson, I look forward to continuing the good relationship that exists between coach Choketawee and the team. I also wish him the very best of luck in his future endeavours."

Nualphan added that Port were about to issue training guidelines to their players who have been released by the club because of the coronavirus fears.

"We have to be ready for the future, so coach Jadet will soon be providing the players with a training regime. We want them to return to the team fit and ready whenever the footballing activities resume in the Thailand," she said.
