Former Dutch international Davy Pröpper (31) has signed a contract with Vitesse and thus returns to professional football. Just last year, Pröpper hung up his shoes because he had lost the sense of football.

Pröpper (31) decided to abruptly stop playing football at the beginning of last year. The midfielder had his contract with PSV terminated because he had lost the fun in football. At the end of November, Pröpper went back to training with his old club Vitesse on a non-binding basis “to taste the taste of football again”, according to technical director Benjamin Schmedes. The nineteen-time international of Orange also played in a Vitesse practice match and has now decided to get back to work as a professional football player.

“As time went on and I started to think more and more about the future, the lack of football grew. I didn’t expect that so much in advance, but I didn’t rule it out either. You see it often: only when you distance yourself or say goodbye to something, do you find out what it really means to you,” says Pröpper, who also played for Brighton in England. “I have many happy and warm memories of my thirteen years at this club. Vitesse has shaped me and feels like my home when it comes to football. It is also nice that there is a familiar and familiar face for the group in Phillip Cocu.”

Vitesse is in fourteenth place in the Eredivisie after eighteen match days with 16 points, but just above the relegation zone.
