Ernie Wais: Ernesto Says Goodbye to Port

 

We’ve been wondering these last couple of weeks what had happened to back-up left-back Ernesto, whom Port picked up from Bangkok Utd during the close season. He didn’t figure in the last couple of friendlies and didn’t travel with the team to Chiang Rai. Well, asking around it seems that the versatile Thai-Spaniard was unable to agree contract terms with the club, and has now left Port.

Whilst Ernesto was unlikely to supplant Kevin as Port’s first-choice LB, he would’ve provided solid back-up and can also play on the left wing and in midfield, so would’ve been a very handy addition to the squad. With the promising Yossawat obviously having run over Jadet’s dog or something, we are back to having Panpanpong as back-up at LB, a man who takes longer to get back into position after a forward run than I do to get to work in the mornings. Fingers crossed that the 2019 injury curse avoids young Kevin.
