Gert Verheyen (born September 20, 1970 in Hoogstraten) is a Belgian footballer who played for Club Brugge and R.S.C. Anderlecht.

In a 16-year professional career in the Jupiler League, Verheyen was known to have rather few technical skills, relying in a hard-working approach.

After more than 500 overall appearances for Brugge, with an instrumental role in the side's conquest of five leagues and cups, he retired on May 5, 2006,[1] becoming a reserve team trainer at the club in 2006-07 and quitting football subsequently at the season's end.

International career

Verheyen was part of the Belgium national team for the 1998 and 2002 World Cups, as well as Euro 2000. His career with Belgium was dulled when he was sent off at 2-0 for Belgium against Mexico in the 1998 edition, his foul causing a penalty as the match would eventually end 2-2. In spite of this event he kept his place in the basic team until he retired after the 2002 World Cup.
