List of foreign football players in the Netherlands

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of foreign players in the Eredivisie, which commenced play in 1956. The following players must meet both of the following two criteria:

  1. Have played at least one Eredivisie game. Players who were signed by Eredivisie clubs, but only played in lower league, cup and/or European games, or did not play in any competitive games at all, are not included.
  2. Are considered foreign, i.e., outside the Netherlands, determined by the following:
A player is considered foreign if he is not eligible to play for the national teams of the Netherlands.

More specifically,

  • If a player has been capped on international level, the national team is used; if he has been capped by more than one country, the highest level (or the most recent) team is used. These include Dutch players with dual citizenship.
  • If a player has not been capped on international level, his country of birth is used, except those who were born abroad from Dutch parents or moved to the Netherlands at a young age, and those who clearly indicated to have switched his nationality to another nation.

Clubs listed are those for which the player has played at least one Eredivisie game—and seasons are those in which the player has played at least one Eredivisie game. Note that seasons, not calendar years, are used. For example, "1992–95" indicates that the player has played in every season from 1992–93 to 1994–95, but not necessarily every calendar year from 1992 to 1995. Therefore, a player should always have a listing under at least two years — for instance, a player making his debut in 2011, during the 2011–12 season, will have '2011–12' after his name. This follows general practice in expressing sporting seasons.

In bold: players who have played at least one Eredivisie game in the current season (2016–17), and the clubs they have played for. They include players who have subsequently left the club, but do not include current players of an Eredivisie club who have not played an Eredivisie game in the current season.
