Christian Ziege named head coach of Thailand's Ratchaburi FC

Former Tottenham and Liverpool fullback Christian Ziege has taken a coaching job in Thailand.

The 72-cap Germany international has been appointed boss of top-flight club Ratchaburi FC.

He replaces Spaniard Pacheta, who led them to sixth in the 18-team league in the 2017 campaign.

Ziege, 45, ended a two-year spell coaching Majorca club Atletico Baleares in March.

The former left wing-back joined Middlesbrough from AC Milan in 1999, but spent just one season at the Riverside Stadium before moving to Anfield.

He helped Gerard Houllier's Reds win a Uefa Cup, FA Cup and League Cup treble in his one season on Merseyside before a three-year stint with Spurs.
