Captain David Rochela is one of the best-known defenders in Thai football. He has a calm but determined attitude, and rarely has to lunge in to a tackle because he reads the game so well. Rochela’s class is underlined by the fact that he played for Spain as they reached the final of the 2007 under 17 World Cup. In 2019, Port’s captain was surprisingly dropped from the T1 squad, but still played a key role in Port’s 2019 FA Cup victory. In 2020 he was once again been overlooked in the T1 squad, but he returned in 2021.
