Kawin Thamsatchanan (Thai: กวินทร์ ธรรมสัจจานันท์, pronounced [kā.wīn tʰām.sàt.t͡ɕāː.nān]; born 26 January 1990), simply known as Tong (Thai: ตอง, pronounced [tɔ̄ːŋ]) is a Thai professional footballer who plays as a Goalkeeper for Belgian First Division B club OH Leuven and the Thailand national team. He has represented his country at U-23 and main level respectively. Kawin's nickname is "Flying Kawin" due to his spectacular flying saves. He got a bachelor in Business Administration from Assumption University.
Kawin Thamsatchanan was born on 26 January 1990 in Bangkok, Thailand. He began his youth career in 2006 with Raj Pracha, making his senior debut with the team in 2007. In 2008, defending Thai division 2 champions Muangthong United signed Kawin at the age of 18. In his first season with Muangthong United, he secured his first team status and helped the club win the division 1 title that season. After Muangthong's promotion to the Thai Premier League for the 2009-2010 season, Kawin led the team to winning the top division title two years in a row, 2009 and 2010.
In October 2010, Bryan Robson, a Manchester United legend and Thailand's national team head coach at the time, spoke to United's goalkeeping coach, Eric Steele, suggesting he take a look at Kawin. However, Kawin broke his wrist, causing him to be out of action for months, ending his hopes of going on trial at Manchester United.
At the start of the 2013 season, while competing in the 2013 Lunar New Year Cup, Kawin collided against Chris Dickson. He suffered a broken shin, which kept him out for 7 months. After returning to the pitch in the second leg of the Thai Premier League, he dislocated his shoulder and tore ligaments in a match against TOT S.C., ending his season.
Kawin had debut his first senior caps in 2010 King's Cup against Singapore at Nakhon Ratchasima province. Recently, under the management of Winfried Schafer, Kawin has been dropped to a substitution of Sintaweechai Hathairattanakool. He was the starting goalkeeper of the tournament in the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup.
He represented Thailand U23 in the 2013 Southeast Asian Games. Kawin was the flag bearer for Thailand in the 2014 Asian Games, and was the captain of Thailand U23 in the tournament. Kawin is one of the overaged players playing in the 2014 Asian Games.
In September 2013, V.Vachiramethi a famous Thai monk advised him to add two thai alphabets to his name, therefore Kawin decided to change his name from กวิน to กวินทร์. His new name means a great and powerful man. Despite the change of his name the pronunciation of the word is still the same as the old name.
