Futsal Player: Tobias is the best, but I also enjoy watching other skillful players like Falcao en Edwin Grunholz. I really enjoy working with my players of IT/SCN.

Futsal League you would like to play/coach: I don't play anymore, but as a coach I would like to work in the Spanish or Italian League. In the future I would like to serve my country as the National coach.

Match you remember (+): The away match for the Benelux Cup (1997) against Ford Genk. At home we lost 1-6. In Genk we won 8-2. Not only the result, but also the way we played made an enormous impression on me.

Match you remember (-): The final of the Dutch championship in 1999 that we lost on penalties against Den Haag Trimeur.

Goal you remember: Glenn Zeeligs winning penalty in 1996 in the final of the Dutch championship against Bunga Melati.
Carrier: Due to knee injuries I barely had a career as a player. The benefit of this all is that I started my career as a coach early. With me as the head coach IT/SCN (formerly known as 't Hoornsche Veerhuys) played the Play Off final 4 times and became champion of Holland twice: in 1996 and 2000. Three times we won the Benelux Cup: in 1997, 2000 and recently in 2001 against Action 21 Charloi. Before IT/SCN was Dutch champion in 1993 and Benelux champion in 1994.

Year Futsal Sallary: Not enough to be a full time trainer-coach. I hope that in the near future we will be able to play futsal professionally in Holland. Or that I will we able to work professionally outside Holland.

After the Player Carrier you will remain in Futsal: My Player Career is already over. I hope to be active as a coach for a long time.
