A-League and smaller Europe leagues – S.League stars that made it outside of Southeast Asia

In part two of this series,  FourFourTwo's Nigel Chin tracks the success of five S.League exports who made their name moving abroad…

Federico Martinez

The Uruguayan was signed as a replacement for Aleksandar Duric at Singapore Armed Forces Football Club (now Warriors FC), but he hardly set the league apart.

While 12 goals in 23 games in all competitions looks like a pretty decent stat, the truth was that he often slowed down the Warriors’ attack that included Indra Sahdan, Park Tae Won and Ahmad Latiff.

It was without a surprise then that he was allowed to leave the club after the season, but he managed to land himself with a Latvian top flight club FK Ventspils in 2011.

He truly prospered there, scoring 20 times in 70 appearances, helping the club to win the league and cup double twice in three seasons.

He also participated in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League qualifers, although the club did not go through into the group stages.

He is currently with Bolivia top flight club Oriente Petrolero.
