Some of the world’s biggest football clubs are interested in buying the Moo Pa Wild Boars football academy.

 

But the club’s vice president and manager, Kittipong Intaechai, has said despite the interest his club is not for sale at any price.

 

Mr Intaechai said the purpose of the academy is to help improve the lives of local boys in Chiang Rai through playing football, not to make money.

 

Mr Intaechai also warned the public about buying Wild Boar souvenirs.

 

In the aftermath of the rescue many souvenirs have been created that include the logo and name of the Wild Boar team. However, these have not been produced by the club but instead by people hoping to cash in on the back of the success of the rescue operation.

 

The Wild Boars football team shot to prominence during the much publicised and successful operation to rescue 12 of its junior team members and one of its coaches from the flooded Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai.

While none of the clubs supposedly interested in buying the Wild Boars were named in the report in Thai media, teams from the around the world have offered support and gifts to the boys following their rescue from the cave.

 

TNA reported that German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich recently sent well wishes to the boys along with 13 replica jerseys which have ‘Moopa Academy’ printed on the back.

 

Manchester United previously invited the boys to their Old Trafford stadium and Carrington training base, while Portugal’s Benfica has also offered the boys an all expenses paid trip to train at its academy in Seixal, near Lisbon.

Yeah, just make sure that after you buy 'the club', whatever that entails, those kids will not get lost again somewhere that will cost millions of dollars and half the world help to find them......

Unauthorised fake merchandise? In Thailand? Written whilst wearing rather fetching "Lacoste" shirt off the market.

Nah, they'll be wearing those GPS tracking ankle bracelets that were suggested for foreigners.

Well I'll be damned, a man of integrity. I hope he doesn't get transferred, and I really hope that ex police chief FA president keeps his greasy palms out of this one. Wait and see.

It's really starting to become ridiculous by now!

Yeah, but don’t worry. Soon nobody will care about these boys... just like before they went into the cave.
