The 86-time Dutch international Marc Overmars (49) has suffered a minor stroke. The former wing of Ajax Amsterdam and Arsenal, current sports director of the top Belgian club Royal Antwerp, felt unwell on Friday night and then went to hospital, his club said.
“Marc is doing well now, but he will have to take it easy for a while.” Overmars has been working in Antwerp since March. At the beginning of the year he resigned as technical director of Ajax. It had previously become known that he had sent messages to club employees that “crossed the line”, as Ajax put it.
