To Balkans, France and Northern Ireland: S.League players who moved beyond Southeast Asia

The season is ending soon, and some players might take this opportunity to explore options outside of the S.League and beyond Southeast Asia. FourFourTwo once again takes a look at the career of several former S.League players to see how they fared after leaving for supposedly greener pastures...

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

The S.League has seen its fair share of imports from Balkan region, from Nenad Bacina and Mirko Grabovic to Sead Muratovic, just to name a few.

But where do some of those players end up after leaving the S.League? Here are former S.League players who tried their luck beyond Southeast Asia after playing in our league...

Boris Raspudic

This is a name dear to many Brunei DPMM fans, having helped the Bruneian club to their first S.League title in 2015.

While not the tallest of centre-back at 1.80m, his ferocious defending and no-nonsense attitude more than made up for his height (or lack of it).

Over two years, he made 51 appearances – showing just how vital he was to his coaches – and scored five goals.

He was only released at the end of 2015, after a reduction in the foreign import quota was made.

Returning to Bosnia, Raspudic joined Bosnian top flight club FK Borac Banja Luka. In the recently concluded season, they were relegated after finishing in 11th out of 16th (the bottom six clubs get relegated).
