Chonburi FC and Sriracha FC. Those were the stations of Irfan Bachdim in 2013. In October we met the Indonesian international for a detailed interview.

In 2013 and for the first time in his career, Irfan Bachdim played in Thailand. In our first part of the interview we talked about the early years of his career and how he came to Thailand. Today, in the second part, we primarily talk about Sriracha FC. He compares Thailand and Indonesia as well as his coaches for us. He speaks of lacking concentration and explains why football players must carry earphones of a certain brand. A small warning to the reader: this interview drifts off into the realm of tabloids, but is still interesting nonetheless.

Chonburi FC and Sriracha FC. Those were the stations of Irfan Bachdim in 2013. In October we met the Indonesian international for a detailed interview.

25 years ago Irfan Bachdim was born in the capital of Holland as a son of a Indonesian father and a Dutch mother. Having grown up in the contemplative Mijdrecht, today he is a Indonesian international and is conisdered as star in South-East Asia and espacially in Indonesia. His marriage with model Jennifer Kurniawan also contributes to the latter. And yet he is absolutely down-to-earth and has remained quite normal. In 2013, the easily to approachable star, moved to the Thai Premier League where he played for Chonburi FC during the first half of the season. Halfway through the season he joined Chonburi's small brother Sriracha FC in Division One. Maybe not entirely by choice. He did his part to keep the side in the league with his - and the clubs last goal of the season on the very last matchday.

It is been a while now since we sat together with Thailand's man in charge for our first interview in 2011. A lot of things happened since and equipped with its knowledge of 2013 a second one is overdue. And here is our two-part interview with Winfried Schafer.

Since 21 month now, Winfried Schafer is at office as coach of the Thai national team and exiting times are behind him. After his side barely missed the third qualification round to the World Cup 2014, Schafer was close to step down. However, he remained. In December his team showed a breathtaking performance during the Suzuki Cup with Singapore eventually to spoil the party. With no doubt most of the fans back him. However, according to the Thai press, it is believed his day's are numbered if Thailand won't be able to beat Lebanon next week in a crucial Asian Cup Qualifier.
