Eric Gerets Profile
One of European football’s greatest right backs, Eric Gerets was a mainstay of the Belgian national team from the mid 1970s right through to the early 1990s, captaining the Red Devils at three World Cups and amassing 86 caps along the way, second only to Jan Ceulemans when he retired in 1992.
An attack-minded full-back, he had 12 great years with Standard Liège before single seasons with Milan and MVV Maastricht. In 1985 he was signed by PSV Eindhoven and enjoyed an incredible career swansong at the Eindhoven club, winning six Eredivisie titles in seven seasons and captaining them to European Cup glory in 1988.
