Joey Suk (born 8 July 1989) is a Dutch-Indonesian footballer who currently plays for NAC Breda. He formerly played for Go Ahead Eagles and Beerschot.

Early life

Suk was born in Deventer, Overijssel, a town in eastern Holland.

Club career

Youth career

Suk started his career at local Deventer club DVV Davo. He was picked up by Deventer's only professional club, Go Ahead Eagles as a youth player.

Go Ahead Eagles (2009-2013)

Suk made his league debut on 6 February 2009, in Go Ahead Eagles' away-match against FC Omniworld. Surprisingly, he was in the starting lineup and stayed there until the end of the match. The game ended 1–2 for the Eagles.[2]

The following season he became a regular for the Deventer side, featuring in 22 matches and scoring 4 goals. This created interest from several unnamed clubs.[3]

Beerschot AC (2013)

On 5 January 2013, Suk signed with Beerschot until the summer of 2016.[4] However, after Beerschot's bankruptcy Suk became without a club.

NAC Breda (2013-)

On 14 June, Suk signed a four-year contract with NAC Breda. [5]

International career

As recently the Football Association of Indonesia had called some of the Indonesian players oversea to play for Indonesia. Suk, with his teammate Diego Michiels, was called to join Indonesia U-23 in 2012 AFC Men's Pre-Olympic Tournament against Turkmenistan U-23. But, due to their Indonesian citizenship haven't done yet, they can only play for the second leg in Ashkhabad, Turkmenistan, March 9, 2011. His citizenship is finally done in April 7, 2011. Joey, along with the other 2 naturalized players, will be able to play for Indonesia in 2011 SEA Games.[6]

But then the status of naturalization of Joey Suk become something unfinished case. He never played for Indonesia, and the calling from national team also never reach him, the status of the naturalization process since become idle.


Suk has two tattoos; one which shows his love for his hometown Deventer, and one on his back, that shows a cross with angel wings and his name, Joey Suk, above.
