City sign Thai trio

19 Nov 2007 - 08:04:48

New Manchester City signing Suree Sukha says he believes he can play a key part in the club's progress and does not believe he has been signed for political reasons.

Former Thai Prime Minister and current City chairman Thaksin Shinawatra persuaded Sven-Goran Eriksson to sign Thailand trio Suree, Kiatprawut Saiwaeo and Teerasil Dangda just weeks before a Thai general election.

Bur Suree told Reuters: "I believe in myself, I believe I can make it, this doesn't have anything to do with politics.

"It's great that Thai players have this chance. I want to do a good job at City.

"Thaksin is the owner, and he says he wants to improve Thai football - there's nothing wrong with that."

National team coach Charnwit Polcheewin disagreed though, saying: "We know this is political but this is not the only reason.

"I saw Suree's performance on trial in Manchester. He was excellent and Sven was impressed. I absolutely believe this was Sven's decision and not Thaksin's.

"I think Suree can make it because City have some problems in the right-back position. He will improve a lot there."
