Better the Devil You Know: Jadet Signs On for 2019

 

After guiding the club to their highest league finish for 15 years and their highest ever T1 points total, Port’s portly potentate Jadet has been rewarded with a new contract for the 2019 season. With rumoured target Alexandre Gama leaving Chiang Rai to take over the Thai U23 team, and Jadet saying “Give me just a little more time”, La Pang has extended the flabby foreman’s deal for another year. Port have got to be certain that they have the right coach in place, as the last thing they want to do is step back in time back to the days when we had several coaches per season.

 

 

Whilst the move may not be universally popular with Port fans – look at our recent poll results above and you’ll be shocked to see that not one respondent wanted Jadet to stay – with your hand on your heart you have to admit that the big fella has done a very good job at Port, with promotion from T2 (and a League Cup semi), followed by 9th and 3rd-place finishes in T1. And hopefully Port will carry the locomotion generated by their strong finish to the season into 2019 and finish even higher. We should be so lucky!
