BREAKING: Thailand coach Kiatisuk resigns after disappointing World Cup qualifying campaign
However the team has collected just one point from seven games to date.
After returning home from a 4-0 thrashing by Japan, Zico told the press it would be totally up to the Thai Football Association (FAT) president whether he wanted to keep or get rid of the coach and players.
This afternoon, Pol. Gen. Somyos Pumpanmuang fired back at Zico, saying he had never thought of eliminating any players and it was not his job to do so.
The drama concluded when Zico offered his resignation and it was accepted by the FAT.
