Former Etoile star Michelini back for second Bangkok Glass stint

The French midfielder played for the French club in the S.League in their debut season before subsequently joining the Thai Premier League side for a year and a half
Former Bangkok Glass player Flavien Michelini has returned to Thailand for a second time with the same club on a six-month contract.

The French attacking midfielder played for the Thai Premier League (TPL) side after signing for them in June 2011, but subsequently got injured and fell out of then-manager Phil Stubbins’s plans.

Michelini left the club in October last year after spending a year and a half with them, but arrived in Thailand on June 5 two weeks ago and posted a status on his Facebook yesterday on June 20 stating that he had a “done” deal and would “update soon” about his new club.

Bangkok Glass coach Attaphol Busapakom was delighted with his new acquisition.

"I saw his skill last year; he has got many talents and his creativity in attack is so good," he effused.
"We need a player in this position and he doesn't need to adjust anything much. We will just put in new tactics to [accommodate] him."
Michelini will only be able to start playing for the club on July 7.

The 26-year-old started his career at French lower-league side FC Gueugnon before moving on to AFC Compiegne and SO Romorantin. He then became part of the first-ever French side to play in the S.League with Etoile FC in 2010 and won the league title with them in that debut season.
