Renée Slegers has decided to put an end to her voetballoopbaan.
The 29-year-old Brabant had a lot to do with injuries, but came nevertheless to 55 international matches (fifteen goals) for Orange. “I close my career with a double feeling,” says Slegers.
“Through injuries was not always as I had hoped. On the other hand I am also very aware that I very far am come, and a lot of beautiful things to have experienced. Many girls dream of once the shirt of Orange to be allowed to withdraw and I am proud that I got to do.”

At the world cup 2015 in Canada was midfielder Slegers absent due to a back injury. A heavy kruisbandkwetsuur also put a line through its participation in the european CHAMPIONSHIPS last summer in their own country.
“It was hard to be that from the stands, but at the same time, I have enjoyed,” said Slegers, who is busy with a trainersopleiding. “I hope to be in a new role in my life, to be able to contribute in the further development of women’s football.”
