Club career

At the amateur level, Ronald de Boer played for De Zouaven (1986–87) and Lutjebroek (1987-88). On the professional club level, Ronald played for Ajax (1988–91 and 1993–98), Twente (1991–93), FC Barcelona (1998–2000), Rangers (2000–04), Al-Rayyan (2004–05) and Al-Shamal (2005–08). In both Qatari clubs, he was reunited again with his brother Frank, his teammate at Ajax, Barcelona, and Rangers.

De Boer won the Champions League with Ajax in 1994–95 season. While impressive at Ajax during the early 1990s towards the 1998 FIFA World Cup, his high-profile transfer to Barcelona marked what would be an unlikely bad patch for a prolific goal-scoring midfielder as he managed to feature in only 33 games for the club and only scored one goal overall. In the 2000–01 season, he opted to join the Dutch legion at Rangers under the manager Dick Advocaat. Among the Dutch internationals who at that time played for the Rangers were Arthur Numan, Bert Konterman, Fernando Ricksen, and Giovanni van Bronckhorst. He spent four successful seasons with the club before joining Al-Rayyan after the 2003–04 season.

De Boer recovered from surgery on a neck injury and decided not to play in Al-Shamal's last two games of the 2006–07 season. On March 19, 2008, de Boer canceled his contract with Qatar outfit Al-Shamal and retired.

International career

De Boer won 67 caps and scored 13 goals for the Dutch national team. He played for the Netherlands in the 1994 and the 1998 World Cups, where he played in six matches and scored two goals. He missed a penalty in the penalty shootout against Brazil in the 1998 semi-finals. De Boer also played in Euro 96, and Euro 2000.

In the Dutch national team de Boer was used in various positions, including right-half, centre forward, and attacking midfielder. In his early Ajax years, de Boer played either centre forward or attacking midfielder. In later years he shifted to right midfield.

De Boer was never officially captain of the Dutch national team or Ajax, but he has worn the captain's armband on several occasions for both club teams and the national team when the first-choice captain was not playing. In most teams, this was his brother Frank, with whom he has played side by side for most of his career.
