Buriram United have appointed former BEC Tero head coach Jose Alves Borges as Head of Youth Development and Academy Director. He replaces fellow Brazilian Fabio Periera and it comes as a surprise as Fabio and his team appeared to be doing well at the Academy.

Senor Borges has worked in Thailand since 2004 , taking TTM  FC to the league title in 2005 and BEC Tero to League Cup success in 2014 when they beat Buriram in the final.

We wish him well in his very important new role and his experience will no doubt be a big help to Head Coach Alexandre Gama.
