On Sunday the PSV fans will say goodbye to four players who have been at the club for a long time. One of them is the 39-year-old Jan Heintze and the other players that we will fondly remember are Arnold Bruggink, Georgi Gakhokidze and Jürgen Dirkx.

<b>Jürgen Dirkx</b>, born in Reusel on 15 August 1974, made his debut for PSV in the UEFA Cup tie away at Bayer Leverkussen (5-4) on 13 September 1994. Dirkx was on loan at Fortuna Sittard for two spells. He played 105 games for that club and scored two goals.

<b>Georgi Gakhokidze</b> was born in Tbilisi (Georgia) on 5 November 1975 and was in PSV service for four seasons. He was handed his debut on 12 September 1998, when he came on as a substitute in the home game against MVV (2-0).

After his first season at PSV, Gakhokidze completed a loan deal with Maccabi Haifa in Israel, but that adventure lasted only one season. Gakhokidze played 17 games for his country, in which he netted two goals.
