Orlando Engelaar

Who? You've probably never heard of him.

He plays in the lowly Belgian league and before that the Dutch league, for a lowly Dutch team, NAC Breda in midfield. His current club is Genk.

But when I have seen him, Orlando Engelaar plays like a man among boys. Tall (almost 200 cm), fit, good movement and accurate passing describe best what I have seen. He is also good holding the back side of midfield and allows players in front of him to talk more risks on the ball and with runs.

I can't understand why he wasn't picked up by a bigger club in a bigger league, at 25 yrs old, he is in his prime and could have held the midfield for a number of clubs which needed it.

Orlando Engelaar actually did get his training at the facilities in Rotterdam ( Feyenoord ). Now, Feyenoord want to get him back from RC Genk, but Engelaar has been saying over and over that he doesn't want to leave. So he's blocking himself, although RC Genk play in the UEFA Cup, as they finished 3rd last season, after two play - offs with Standard de Li├Ęge.

Maybe he wants to go to a bigger league rather than Holland. That could explain him hesitating.
