‘Overmars brings son to Antwerp: Frenkie Overmars becomes a scout in Belgium’

Royal Antwerp FC recently has a second Overmars in service. Technical director Marc Overmars has hired his son Frenkie as a scout of the club, reports Het Laatste Nieuws.
The 22-year-old Frenkie played in the youth of FC Twente, but a breakthrough in professional football remained unsuccessful. He played for some time in the higher echelons of Dutch amateur football, but due to a serious knee injury, he had to quit at the end of last year. Since then, he has embarked on a career off the field. And with success, it seems.
Antwerp still offers Frenkie Overmars a chance in professional football. He must strengthen The Great Old‘s scouting team, writes the Belgian newspaper. This means that he will soon be able to introduce new players to his father.

s Antwerp has started the season vigorously in the Jupiler Pro League. After seven duels, the team still has the full loot and is already five points ahead of the closest attackers.
