Mitchell van der Gaag (born October 22, 1971 in Zutphen, Gelderland) is a former Dutch footballer, who played as a central defender, and a current manager.

Football career

After graduating from PSV Eindhoven's youth ranks, van der Gaag played three seasons on loan, to NEC Nijmegen and Sparta Rotterdam, returning to Eindhoven for a further three years, never being an important first team figure, however.

In January 1995, he moved to Motherwell FC, and subsequently returned to the Dutch first division, with FC Utrecht. In 2001–02, van der Gaag joined Portugal's Club Sport Marítimo, being one of the Madeira side's most influential players, as it consolidated in the top flight. He scored six league goals in his third season, helping Marítimo finish sixth and qualify for the UEFA Cup.

Van der Gaag retired from football after 2006–07, having spent one season with Al Nassr, in Saudi Arabia. In July 2008, he returned to Marítimo as a coach, taking the reins of its B team.

In late September 2009, after Carlos Carvalhal's dismissal following a string of bad results, van der Gaag was promoted to the first team.
