Should we really introduce Simons? The midfielder (11/12/1976) joined Club in an earlier stint from 2000 to 2005, winning two titles, two Cups and an election as Belgium&#39;s best player. Wearing number 3, he was a legend as Club&#39;s captain.</p>
<p>
Simons kicked off his career at KTH Diest beforing penning a contract at Lommel in 1998. The defensive midfielder found his way in the team easily, which earned him a transfer to Club Brugge after just two seasons in Lommel. &nbsp;</p>
<p>
It didn&#39;t take long for Simons to also become Club&#39;s captain and pillar. Silverware came in 2002 (Cup), 2003 (league title), 2004 (Cup) and 2005 (league title). His strong performance at Jan Breydel earned him the Golden Boot in 2002. In 182 games at Club, he scored 27 goals.</p>

In 2005, Simons was up for a new challenge, signing a contract at PSV Eindhoven. The team promoted him as skipper in 2007, and Simons added three consecutive titles to his impressive list of honours. This meant he won a prize in every season from 2002 to 2008, quite a feat.</p>
<p>
Five years Eindhoven were followed up with another step higher, bringing him to the Bundesliga. At FC N&uuml;rnberg, Simons became the player with the most games played in two seasons (110).&nbsp;</p>
<p>
National coach Ren&eacute; Vandereycken made Simons captain of his Red Devils, and under Marc Wilmots, he has also earned his place in the selection. Throughout his career, he has earned the most caps, with the exception of Jan Ceulemans, another Club legend, counting three more international games.</p>
<p>
So now Simons returns to Club. The former captain has signed a two year contract, with an option to join the technical staff at Club after that. Welcome, Timmy!</p>
