JAKARTA (11 Oct 2019) – Black Steel Manokwari have confirmed their signing of Rakphol Sainetngam as their new head coach.

The Chonburi Bluewave tactician replaced Dutchman Yori van der Torren, who was relieved of his duties earlier in the year.

The well-decorated Rakphol is the first Thai coach to ply his trade in Indonesia although with Black Steel, he will have his work cut out considering that a handful of experienced players have already left the club.

And time will not be on Rakphol’s side.

For the new season of the Pro Futsal League 2020 scheduled for 7 December 2019 kick-off, Black Steel will be up against Vamos Mataram, Devina FC Jakarta, Young Rior Luwu Utara, Giga FC Kota Metro, Halus FC Jakarta, BJL 2000 Semarang and Jeck Kato Berau.
