Former Arsenal star Marc Overmars has made a playing comeback - four years after retiring.

The 35-year-old Holland international has resumed playing for Go Ahead Eagles, the Dutch First Division club where he works as chief executive.

Overmars, now a multimillionaire property and car dealer, said: "After appearing in Jaap Stam's testimonial I got offers from German and Dutch clubs.

"I must admit I was surprised to see I could still compete at a high level.

"I retired because my right knee could not cope with training five times a week. Now it has been rested for a long while it seems all right again."
