Maarten Schops (born 3 April 1976) is a Belgian former footballer, who played as a defensive midfielder.[1]

Club career[edit]

Schops started out with Belgian club Lommel.[2] In 1996, he joined Dutch side Roda JC, where he won the KNVB Cup in his first season, scoring in the final.[2] During the second half of the 1997–98 season, he was loaned out to fellow Eredivisie team RKC Waalwijk, and in the summer of 1998, he made a permanent transfer to the club.[3] In October 2000, Schops was loaned out to RBC Roosendaal for the remainder of the season, as his services were no longer needed at RKC Waalwijk.[4] He subsequently had short periods playing for FC Zwolle (Eredivisie) and FC Den Bosch (Eerste Divisie) before leaving the Netherlands for Verbroedering Geel in his home country.[1] In 2005, he moved to Germany, where he played in the lower leagues.[1]
