The Dutch coach had already given Bimal a chance to train with FC Twente and says he is working hard to promote Bimal in Europe and claims that the visa is only barrier in the process.


1. What clubs are you working for Bimal? If you could reveal the name or give some hint about those(of which league, what tier)?

I can not tell the name of the clubs but we are working very hard to promote Bimal in Europe. I believe in his talent but he has to make the next step in his career. He need quality coaches, facilities, players, opponents around him to develop himself.

2. Is Twente still interested in Bimal ? If yes what kind of interest ? A contract or another level of Trial ? What would be the next step.

Yes, but only when he has a visa for Holland. That is the most difficulty on the moment. We are trying to find a solution for that problem. As you know, players under 18 can not stay in Holland for a long period. 

3. Besides Bimal, You also praised for Hemant Thapa Magar(captain during U16 SAFF), any possibilities for him ?

Yes, there are many good players in South East Asian with lots of talent. We will try to help them. I think Nepal can bring more good football players because it is a football crazy country. People love football. If the U16 or the national team is playing, the crowd is supporting always their teams. I love that attitude of the people in Nepal. I been there now a few times with the national team and youth teams of Bangladesh and it was great. I hope to come in Nepal even more in the future, may be as a coach. It is a country with a lot of potential. I always like to work in countries where the people supporting football and when the talent is there.
