At a time when locally-born strikers can struggle to get opportunities in Thai football ahead of foreign imports, Teerasil has proven an exception to the rule. He is a critical member of a Muangthong team that expects to contend for trophies every season.
Dinh Thanh Trung
A creative force in Vietnamese football, he captained unfancied Quang Nam to their first ever V.League title to earn himself player of the year honours. Need we say more?
It feels like Aung has been starring on the Southeast Asian scene for so long, it’s hard to believe he’s only 21 years old. Having signed with Thai side Police Tero for 2018, his reputation can only continue to grow.
Andritany had a superb 2017 campaign, conceding just 24 goals in 34 matches for Persija Jakarta. That earned him the goalkeeping position in Liga 1’s Best XI of the season.
At a time when some suspect Safiq’s influence may be starting to wane, he still captained Johor Darul Ta’zim to a fourth consecutive Malaysia Super League title and a first ever Malaysia Cup crown.
The fleet-footed superstar made headlines for all the right reasons in 2017 after deciding to test himself in Japan. He gradually gained momentum and once he started playing regularly, he garnered a cult following from Consadole Sapporo fans.
Theerathon is such a model of consistency, his excellence could almost be taken for granted. He rarely lets down his club or country and it’s no surprise he’s been linked with moves to Japan.
In a year when Singapore football struggled for positive headlines, Hassan at least provided some dependency in goal. Cementing his place as the Lions’ first choice custodian, he also earned himself a move back to Thai football with Army United.
A versatile midfielder, Jakkaphan has an extraordinary array of silverware from his career to date, winning a fifth league title after an impressively consistent 2017 campaign to add to his four Thai FA Cups and four Thai League Cups, among others.
Nguyen Van Quyet
Having already won two leagues titles (2013, 2016) with Ha Noi FC and represented his country at the 2014 and 2016 Suzuki Cups, the current Vietnam captain has been linked heavily with a move to the Malaysia Super League for this coming season.
