Winfried Schaefer is set to be appointed as coach of Thailand's national team.

Local media reported Wednesday that former Cameroon coach Schaefer signed a memorandum of understanding with the Football Association of Thailand president Worawi Makudi.

Reports put the salary at almost $50,000 per month for three years.

He would replace former Manchester United great Bryan Robson, who resigned earlier this month after successful cancer treatment.

Schaefer, a German, led Cameroon to the African Nations Cup title in 2002 and coached the team at that year's World Cup. He was most recently in charge of Azerbaijan club Baku.
