Like many other footballers who did not succeed and play in big teams in Europe, Arjan de Zeeuw had to find another profession in order to live. Arjan de Zeeuw became a private detective and works for the Dutch police as a detective. It’s a great job for the former soccer player who humiliated Cristiano Ronaldo.
While playing soccer and defending players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Arjan de Zeeuw also studied. Arjan de Zeeuw’s most important teams were Wigan and Portsmouth and that’s when he faced and hurt Cristiano Ronaldo.
