DUTCH WIZARD GULLIT NAMED AS HEADLINE SPEAKER FOR 2019 SPORTSMAN’S DINNER
COVE Rangers are delighted to announce Ruud Gullit as the headline speaker for our Annual Sportsman's Dinner 2019
Gullit started his career with HFC Haarlem before a succesful 3 year spell with Dutch giants Feyenoord winning the Eredivisie & Dutch Cup. In 1987, he moved from PSV to AC Milan for a world record transfer fee of £6m. Easily recognizable in those days with the distinctive dreadlocks and moustache, he was part of the famed Dutch trio at Milan which included Marco van Basten and Frank Rijkaard. Gullit went on to win three Serie A titles and two European Cups with Milan. In 1996, he signed for Chelsea and a year later was appointed the club's player-manager. In his debut season, he led Chelsea to FA Cup success, the club's first major title for 26 years, and in doing so became the first overseas manager to win the FA Cup.
He won the Ballon d'Or in 1987 and was named the World Soccer Player of the Year in 1987 & 1989. The 56 year old Dutchman is sure to have some great stories when he will join us at the Marcliffe Hotel & Spa on Friday 26th April
Following on from Ruud, we are delighted to welcome back seasoned after dinner speaker & comedian, Tam Cowan. He will no doubt provide another great night of laughter for all to enjoy.
