Laos look to Booth
Former PPCFC coach David Booth, now in charge of Laos again
Former Phnom Penh Crown head coach David Booth has been handed the task, for a second time, to coach
the Laos national team, for the remainder of this year. Laos will be the
hosts of the AFF Suzuki Cup Qualifying competition in October and will
be looking to Booth's vast experience in these situations, to steer them into
the final stages. He did just that for Laos back in 2010. His first game will be against Cambodia on 12 October and promises to be an intriguing contest, as he will come face to face with a few of his former Crown players. Booth was the coach of Lao Toyota for most of the season just
completed, where they finished second. He will be in charge of the club side next season too. Let's not forget it was the British-born coach who won the Cambodian Championship with Crown in 2011 and came so close to winning the AFC President's Cup, losing the final in Taiwan. He was previously in charge of the national teams of Brunei, Myanmar and Laos, before spells at Sisaket, Crown, Salgaocar and Lao Toyota.
