SCG Muangthong United are taking the opportunity to solidify the squad in this pause in league action.
The club recently played a friendly match against T2 team Udon Thani FC. Many of the younger Kirin were given the chance to show their worth. Coach Gama was pleased with the 6-0 victory, and is looking for his team to better it's goal scoring record.
In fact, the break gives time for Muangthong's latest signing, Sardor Mirzaev, to catch his breath and develop his role with the team.
The Kirin #10 is the most highly valued foreign player across all ASEAN leagues. His predicted worth is 1.5 million dollars, or about 48 million baht.
The 28 year old attacker is the backbone of the Uzbekistan National Team and a key player for Lokomotiv Tashkent before SCG Muangthong United came calling.
Sardor led his team to win the championships in 2016, 2017, and 2018, including the country's FA Cup competition, as well as gaining considerable Asian Champions League experience.
In 2009, Sardor represented his country in the U20 World Cup against Ghana, Uruguay, and England. In 2015 Sardor was to be called to lead the senior national team.
As well, SCG Muangthong United have several players out on injury, and the break in action allows them to get back into match fitness while missing less games than expected.
Out injured are Marco Ballini (centre back), Adisorn Pomrak (centre back), Daisuke Sato (wing back), and Willian Popp (defensive midfielder). All but Daisuke should be able to return to action in April.
The league has yet to announce when the four postponed games will be played. Thai football fans are waiting to hear about changes to the Asian Champions League games as well as the World Cup qualification games, which will affect when the league games can be played.
SCG Muangthong United will be ready, however, when they host Trat FC at the SCG Stadium when games begin again on April 18th.
