Thailand have appointed Milovan Rajevac as the new coach of the national football team, plumping for the man who guided Ghana to an unlikely quarter-final spot at the 2010 World Cup.
The former Red Star Belgrade defender was available after leaving his as Algeria coach last year after just two games.
He will replace Kiatisuk Senamuang who left the Thai national side after a series of heavy defeats in their World Cup qualifying campaign that has left them bottom of their qualifying group.
The Serb was picked from a shortlist that included former Brazil coach and World Cup winning captain Dunga and former Barcelona manager Frank Rijkaard.
Milovan Rajevac will start work on May 4, before Thailand’s next scheduled match, against the United Arab Emirates, in a World Cup qualifier in Bangkok on June 13.
