Samuel Scheimann (Hebrew: שמואל שיימן‎; born 3 November 1987) is an Israeli international footballer who plays professionally for VVV-Venlo in the Eredivisie, as a left back. He formerly played for Feyenoord, NAC Breda, Kozakken Boys, FC Den Bosch, SBV Excelsior, Maccabi Haifa, Hapoel Haifa, Hapoel Tel Aviv and Beitar Jerusalem.

Early life[edit]

Samuel Scheimann was born in Afula, Israel, to a Jewish family.[2] He immigrated to the Netherlands with his family at the age of five.[3]

Club career[edit]

Scheimann started playing football in the youth system of Feyenoord.[3] In 2003, Scheimann joined the youth system of NAC Breda.[4] At age 18, he represented the Netherlands at the 2005 Maccabiah Games in football.[5] Shortly thereafter, Scheimann was invited by Maccabi Tel Aviv for trials [2] but did not receive a contract.[5] Scheimann returned to the Netherlands and signed a two-year contract with Kozakken Boys.[4] After an extensive trial at Jong AFC Ajax, coach Aron Winter wanted to sign Scheimann in 2008, but Martin van Geel vetoed the signing.[3] On 11 April 2008, he signed with FC Den Bosch from Kozakken Boys after rejecting an offer from Feyenoord because he wanted first team action.[3] Scheimann was voted 'Player of the Year' in his first season with Den Bosch.[6]

After the 2010–11 Eerste Divisie season ended, Scheimann left Den Bosch as a free agent. He joined Eredivisie club Excelsior Rotterdam on a two-year contract until July 2013.

Scheimann made his debut for Excelsior in a 2–0 loss against Feyenoord on 5 August 2011, playing 90 minutes.[7]

On 3 June 2012, he signed to Maccabi Haifa for two years, with an option for two more years.[8] On 27 August 2012, he made his Israeli Premier League debut in a 1–2 loss against Maccabi Tel Aviv.

On 2 June 2015, he signed to Hapoel Tel Aviv for two years.[9] In January 2017 he was released by Hapoel, following financial problems.

On 12 January 2017, he signed to Hapoel Haifa for 1.5 years.[10]

On 11 June 2018, he signed to Hapoel Be'er Sheva for two years.[11]

On 5 September 2018, Scheimann released from Be'er Sheva and signed to Beitar Jerusalem for two years.[12]

In June 2019 he returned to the Netherlands with VVV-Venlo.[13]

International career[edit]

On 16 May 2012, Scheimann received his first call up to the Israeli national team.[14] He made his international debut later that year.[15]
