Swagger, belligerence and a huge number of kilometers covered. Ruud Vormer is a real powerhouse in Club Brugge's midfield. Graced with an excellent shape, the Dutchman controls the game from defense to offense, making himself available to receive or deliver a decisive pass.
The first stop in Ruud Vormer's professional career was at AZ Alkmaar where he made his debut with the first team at the age of 18. Two years later, he headed for Kerkrade to join Roda JC, where he played alongside former Club player Davy De fauw three years on end. This earned him a move to Feyenoord in 2012. A real break-through at De Kuip was not in the cards, however, and he had to settle for a role as substitute. Until Club Brugge came around.
That is where Ruud's career really set off. With unbridled commitment, enthusiasm, and the ability to score the odd goal, 'Ruudje' has one a place in many a Club fan's heart.
