Played for the youth teams of a semi-professional football club in the Netherlands all the way to the Reserve team.

Then picked up an injury and decided to focus on coaching completely as a higher level as a coach than as a player is within reach.

Coach data


I am highly motivated and passionate football coach with a solid background in applying sport science and fitness in football. Hence, I am broadly educated in a wide scope of performance enhancing areas and that makes it easier for me to communicate with other performance enhancing specialists working within a club because I have an understanding of their role. I am able to communicate effectively within the world of football and can talk in sports language. This is something I put into my daily practice at Cape Town City Football Club (RSA), where I monitor and analyse the training load, and, more importantly, educate coaches about the application of sport science and fitness in football.
Also, I understand the culture of professional football and the one of the Middle East.

I have shown to be talented in conducting applied football research given the fact that I won the Young Investigator Award at the World Conference on Science and Soccer in Portland (2014) and by contributing to the writing and reviewing process of the Fitness in Soccer book by van Winckel et al. (2014).
