Robson: Man Utd background helping me with Thailand players

Bryan Robson admits his playing heroics with Manchester United have helped him manage his Thailand players.

Robson led Thailand to a 1-0 friendly victory over Bob Houghton's India last week.

Robson's exploits as a player give him an advantage over most of his countrymen, including Peter Reid - who he succeeded in September 2009. "

The main thing was my connection with Manchester United, it makes it easier with the players," Robson told the Guardian. "They give you respect straight away because they know you because of your international career and because you have played in the Premier League."
