Football Association of Thailand (FAT) president Worawi Makudi is confident Peter Reid will remain as coach.

Stoke manager Tony Pulis is keen for Reid to become his right-hand man as David Kemp is taking a scouting role. Reid was in the directors' box at Birmingham on Saturday to see Pulis' side draw 0-0, and his move to the Britannia Stadium appeared imminent.

But Worawi told the Bangkok Post: "He (Reid) said it was just a rumour. We have seen this type of news many times. I don't think he will leave us. He will continue his work here. He told me that he will not let our players down and promised that he will guide the Thai national team to success."

Reid signed a four-year contract with the FAT last September and Thailand's next assignment is two Asian Cup qualifying matches against Singapore in September.

Worawi added: "I would like Thai fans to feel relaxed about Reid staying with us."
