Lars Veldwijk’s contract with South Korean club Suwon FC has been canceled, according to Voetbal International, after he was found driving under the influence of alcohol. The former Nottingham Forest and Sparta Rotterdam striker was initially banned for 15 games by the K-League, but Suwon have subsequently chosen to release him. In August, the 32-year-old was arrested for drunk driving, which carries heavy penalties in South Korea.
Veldwijk has spent the last three seasons with Suwon FC, where he has become incredibly popular. In 111 games he scored 40 goals and provided 21 assists. The former South Africa international is now without a club, but it’s expected that a Dutch club
will come calling soon, as he’s previously played for seven different sides in the Netherlands. Volendam, Utrecht, Dordrecht, Groningen, PEC Zwolle, Sparta Rotterdam and Excelsior Rotterdam are among the many clubs that Lars Veldwijk has played for. He also had a brief spell with Nottingham Forest, where he scored just one goal in 17 appearances. Suwon FC have said goodbye to the striker and he’ll officially leave the club on the 30th of September
