He told City's website: "I've taken them in training a couple of times, and they are skilful and technically excellent. Their speed of passing, movement and awareness is very good.
"They are an international side, so it really is going to be a test for our lads, and something different as well. They will play a different style of football to what we are used to, and that has to be good for our young players as well.
"The Thai team have experienced a bit of a drop in temperature from Bangkok, that's for sure, but they have been a pleasure to have around and we are looking forward to Sunday."
Defender Shaleum Logan looks set to feature at the Regional Athletics Arena, and he has recollections of playing some of the Thai team a few years ago:
"I played against the Thailand Under 21 side when I was still at the Academy in pre-season a couple of years ago. They were a pretty good side, very fit and fast, and I think Sunday will be a real test for us," says Shaleum.
