Two-time Netherlands international Roy Beerens has decided to retire from football at the age of 33.

In a statement on the Vitesse website, Beerens said, “The football world has given me fantastic memories. I have won prizes, played at great clubs, gained experience abroad and made it to the Dutch national team. It was a wonderful time, but now I consciously choose to quit.

“I want to thank the current management at Vitesse for the respectful way in which they dealt with me. In the near future, I will find out how I want to shape the future. It is certain that, now that I have more time, I will enjoy my son, who plays in the youth academy at PSV. “

Beerens has been with Vitesse since 2018, but hasn’t featured this season at all.

He started his career with PSV Eindhoven before spells with NEC Nijmegen,  sc Heerenveen, AZ Alkmaar, Hertha BSC and Reading. He made two Netherlands appearances in friendlies against Ukraine and Germany back in 2010 and 2011.
