Vice President of Suriname and former rebel leader, 60, plays HIMSELF as captain for his own team Inter Moengotapoe

September 22, 2021

INTER MOENGOTAPOE 60-year-old chairman played HIMSELF as captain in his team's 6-0 thrashing to Olimpia.

Ronnie Brunswijk gave himself the nod in a competitive game, despite having no professional experience.



Wearing the No61 shirt, Brunswijk started in midfield for his Surinamese club against Honduran side Olimpia on Tuesday evening.

The game was a CONCACAF League clash, viewed as the second-tier of continental football in North America, Central America and the Caribbean.

Unsurprisingly, the chairman didn't have a great game and substituted himself in the 54th minute with his side trailing 3-0.

Unconfirmed reports suggest the ball-playing midfielder completed 14 of his 17 attempted passes before his withdrawal.

And his replacement Rievaldo Doorson went on to get sent off as Inter collapsed to an embarrassing 6-0 defeat on home soil.

It's also important to note the game took place at – you guessed it – the Ronnie Brunswijkstadion in Moengo, Suriname.

What makes the story even more remarkable is Brunswijk is Suriname's current VICE-PRESIDENT after assuming office last year.

He is a former rebel leader and the ex-bodyguard of Desi Bouterse, who overthrew the Surinamese government in a 1980 military coup.

According to the New York Times, Brunswijk is a 'wanted bank robber' a 'guerrilla leader' and has fathered at least 50 CHILDREN.

Inter have won ten league titles, three Surinamese Cups and Suriname President's Cups – but are yet to win a major international title.

And it seems unlikely they'll break their duck this season when they face Olimpia in the second leg on Wednesday, September 29.
