Gerardus ("Gerrie") Dominicus Hyacinthus Mühren[1] (2 February 1946 - 19 September 2013) was a Dutch footballer.[2][3]

Mühren was born in Volendam Noord-Holland. He was the older brother of Arnold Mühren, who also played for Netherlands national football team.[2]

Club career

Mühren started his career at FC Volendam, before moving to play for Ajax between 1968 and 1976. Whilst at Ajax he won three European Cup winners medals.[4][5][6] He scored Ajax' 1000th Eredivisie goal against Telstar and the winning goal of the 1972–73 European Cup semi-final second leg against Real Madrid.[7]

He later played for Real Betis and Seiko in Hong Kong. While at Betis, they won the 1977 Copa del Rey but he was denied a winners medal since foreigners were not allowed to play in the cup competition.[8]

In 1983 he won the Dutch Eerste Divisie title with DS '79,[9] but the club was relegated from the Eredivisie the next year which prompted him to return for a final season to Volendam.[10]

International career

He was capped by Holland on 10 occasions, his first cap coming against England in November 1969, and his last against Belgium in November 1973.[2]

Retirement and death

After retiring as a player he worked as a scout for Ajax. He died of Myelodysplastic syndrome, aged 67, in his home town of Volendam.[11]
