Yangon United Striker Than Paing recently signed a two-year contract with Myanmar National League back-to-back champions Shan United, according to the statement with the football club.
The 24-years-old forward player started his football career in the junior team of Yangon United in 2015 and then he was selected in the U-19 Myanmar National team thanks to his performances.
Than Paing scored a single goal in the 2014 AFC U-19 Championship quarter-final and the remarkable goal sent Myanmar U-19 team to the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup for the first time in the Myanmar football history.
“I’m grateful to coaches, my teammates and everybody out there in Yangon United. I was treated like a family member of their own. I owe them a debt of lifelong gratitude,” Than Paing said.
“I was born and bred in Shan State. My dreams of playing in the team that represents my own native state are now fulfilled. My mom is a Shan ethnic and she really wants me to represent Shan State. Now, she’s feeling pleased. I myself want to take new challenges. I do believe that I can carve out a better future playing in the Shan United,” said the Shan State born player.
“I’ve always been struck with awe by the scene of Shan United home stadium in Taunggyi – with supporters to full capacity whenever football matches hold here. We ethnic people are so simple. They show their heartfelt support when they love somebody. Now, I’ve signed for Shan United. I’m looking forward to playing in front of home supporters, wearing Shan United jersey,” Than Paing added.
Myanmar National League defending champions Shan United have already signed defender Kyaw Zin Lwin, Midfielder Thiha Zaw and Forward player Soe Lwin Lwin within this month. —Lynn Thit (Tgi)
