FFT Jetsetters – Who are Southeast Asia's Biggest Football Exports?

It was an ambitious exercise - could we produce a list of the biggest impacts ever made by Southeast Asian footballers overseas? At FourFourTwo, we never shy away from a challenge...

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

There was plenty of debate, cajoling, maybe even the odd tear, but we finally produced our list of Southeast Asia's Biggest Exports.

It's not just about players that spent long, glorious careers in Europe's top leagues - although a certain Filipino listed below did just that.

It was also about unearthing some of the stories you may not have heard, such as a renowned Malaysian who was told to change his name when he reached Australia in the 1970s.

We also wanted to turn the spotlight back on the region and ask the question - why haven't more Southeast Asian talents tried their luck away from home?

The result is a fascinating series of stories and this is the home of it all, right here. So read on...
