Michel Breuer (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈmɪʃəl ˈbrøːər], born 25 May 1980 in Gouda) is a Dutch footballer who currently plays for Eredivisie side Sparta.

Club career[edit]

Breuer started his professional career with Excelsior Rotterdam. In summer 2004 he moved to SC Heerenveen. He became captain of the Heerenveen team at the start of the 2008–09 Eredivisie season. He previously worked at a local secondary school in Heerenveen as a security guard. In July 2012 Breuer left Heerenveen after eight years and 300 matches in all competitions[1] and signed with NEC from Nijmegen.[2]

Sparta[edit]

In January 2014, he was sent on loan to Sparta.[3] After his contract had expired in June 2014, he signed a permanent deal with Sparta. His no-nonsense, wholehearted playing style won him a cult-hero status with their supporters.[4]
