Marc Overmars

Where is Marc Overmars now?

Former Arsenal winger, Marc Overmars also known as ‘The Flying Dutchman’ ended up retiring from his illustrious career on two occasions.

The first time was in 2004 whilst playing for Barcelona and then again in 2009 after he was persuaded to return to football with Dutch side Go Ahead Eagles – the club where he started his playing career.

Upon retiring from playing, Marc Overmars stayed on at Go Ahead Eages to work as their director of football before resigning in 2012 to join Dutch giants Ajax of Amsterdam as their new director of football.

Away from football, Overmars also owned a vintage car business which he ran with his brother and father which they have now sold.

He is also a co-owner of a restaurant in his hometown Epe and is a partner in the family business Overmars Vastgoed BV which invests in commercial and residental buildings.

In April 2017, it was widely reported that Overmars was the front-runner for the new director of football role at his former club Arsenal but nothing came of it.
