His first senior team goal came on 6 May, in a match against Thai Port in the Thai League 1, which gave BEC Tero Sasana a 2–0 win[citation needed]. In early 2013 Chanathip had an offer from J.League side Gamba Osaka. At the end of the season, he won the TPL Young Player of the Year.[citation needed]

In mid-October Shimizu S-Pulse of the J.League offered him a trial at the end of the 2013 season. In late October it was reported directly from BEC Tero Sasana's general manager Robert Procureur that Bundesliga club Hamburg would give Chanathip a trial at the end of the 2014 Bundesliga season and if he succeeded he would be the second Thai player to play in the Bundesliga after Witthaya Laohakul.[citation needed]

Muangthong United[edit]

He helped his club to win the 2016 Thai League and 2016 Thai League Cup in his first season.

His first J-League goal came through a header in a 3–3 draw at Cerezo Osaka on 2 March 2018.[9]
