The trend of brain drain in Nepal has not been limited to normal citizens. Lately, going aboard for better career opportunities have been a serious option for Nepali footballers too due to unstable football condition in Nepal.

Today, five Nepalese footballers flew to Australia to pursue a better career. Nepali players  Rajan Gurung, Rumesh Bartaula, Rabi Thing, Amir Shrestha, and Mikchhen Tamang departed for Australia. More than ten players have gone for Australia this year alone.

Among the five names, Rajan Gurung has already represented the Nepal national team. Rajan made his Nepal debut against India last year. Mikchhen has also represented the senior national team. The other three players are well-known names in Nepal’s A Division competition.

Similarly, Santosh Tamang, Darshan Gurung, Bimal Basnet, Jagjeet Shrestha, Heman Gurung, Bimal Rana, Rohit Karki and Alan Neupane are also in Australia.

Players are migrating to foreign lands due to the uncertainty of the A division league, NSL, and local competitions. If the current situation does not change, the number will surely rise in the coming days.

Speaking on the dreadful condition of Nepali footballers to sustain life, Jagjeet Shrestha said, “Football players for neighboring countries have made the status by going to Europe for the holidays. In the meantime, we Nepali players need to go to Sikkim for playing local tournaments and make money.” Jagjeet himself is currently in Australia.
