Rudy Johan "Ruud" Berger (born February 18, 1980 in Utrecht) is a retired football midfielder from the Netherlands.[1][2]

Club career[edit]

Berger came through the FC Utrecht youth system before making his senior debut in the 1998–99 season. He was loaned to Cambuur in 2001.[3] After two seasons at Emmen he moved to FC Zwolle in 2004.[4]

In August 2005 he joined Eredivisie club RKC Waalwijk,[5] but a knee injury sustained in pre-season forced him to make his debut a few months later.[6] In summer 2010, Berger decided to quit football, citing a loss of motivation and pleasure.[7]
