BBC Sport - World Focus: Meet the only Thai footballer in Spain's La Liga
Meet the only Thai player in La Liga
- From the section Football
World Focus went to meet Teerasil Dangda, the first and only Thai professional footballer to play in Spain's La Liga.
Dangda is a forward player on loan from Muangthong United - who currently plays for UD Almería, as well as representing his country in Thailand's national team.
He says many Thai players resist a move abroad because of the difficulty to adjust to such different cultures and the challenge to make your mark in the high profile European Leagues.
