Buriram United Club president Newin Chidchob said he believed the shooting of the FIFA assistant referee Thanom Borikut was a personal conflict and has nothing to do with the country’s football business.
He said that as far as he knew the assistant referee had personal conflicts with many persons and this was why he was dubbed “Bomber Man”. But he said that he didn’t know much about him and would like the police to find out the real motive.
Chonburi Club vice president Annop Singtothong also said that personal conflict was the most probable cause of the shooting rather than football affairs.
He said that in the football circle everybody knew exactly what sort of a man Thanom.
