A Thai newspaper revealed about HAGL Group's interest in Thai Premier League side BEC Tero Sasana and a takeover could happen in near future.
However, HAGL Group president Doan Nguyen Duc, who is currently in Laos, has denied the rumour and said he had no intention in buying a club overseas. HAGL head coach Kiatisuk Senamuang, who has been continuously approached by Thai press about the rumour, also believes it was nothing more than pure speculation. He said BEC Tero Sasana has been struggling recently so the club was linked with an overseas takeover but he thinks it's unlikely to be HAGL.
Just a few days ago, rumour also said Vietnam national team head coach Henrique Calisto was linked with a move to Muangthong United.
