Club careerEdit

He went to Feyenoord from Xerxes/DHC in 1968 along with Willem van Hanegem, and moved to AZ'67 in 1979. He retired in 1985. On 15 November 1970, Treijtel took down a gull with the ball from a goal-kick during the derby between Sparta Rotterdam and Feyenoord Rotterdam. That gull was later put in Feyenoord's Home of History, but notable Sparta fans want it to be transferred to Sparta's museum.[1]

International careerEdit

Treijtel obtained five caps for the Netherlands national football team. He represented his country in 2 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[2] and was a non-playing squad member at the 1974 FIFA World Cup.
