Orlando Trustfull (born 4 August 1970 in Amsterdam) is a Dutch football manager and a former professional player, who is currently head coach of Ajax A1 (Under 19s).[2] He was previously coach of Ajax B1.[3]


Trustfull was born in Amsterdam and played as a youth player for De Rivalen, Ajax Amsterdam and Blauw-Wit before signing his first professional contract at HFC Haarlem that played in the Eerste Divisie. The midfielder played 14 matches in his first season and was transferred to fellow Eerste Divisie team SVV Schiedam that merged with Dordrecht '90 a year later. Trustfull was a regular first team player and managed to score his first professional goal in the 1991–92 season.

He spent some time at FC Twente where he scored another goal before he was signed by Feyenoord Rotterdam where he had a hard time gaining his first team position.

Trustfull felt he was ready to move on to a foreign country and switched to Sheffield Wednesday in the English Premier League, where he played 19 matches and scored three goals in his first season.[4] He struggled with settling in England and decided to go back to his native country to play for Vitesse Arnhem, where he played a decent first season, but suffered several injuries in the years after. He ended his career after the 2000–01 season having played 223 professional matches and having scored 24 goals.

International career[edit]

Eventually 1994–95 season he succeeded and was even selected for the Dutch national team twice. He participated in two Euro 96 qualification matches versus Belarus and Malta, which were won 1–0 and 4–0 respectively.

Personal life[edit]

Trustfull is married to Dutch television presenter Quinty Trustfull.
