Marc Wilmots was born 22 February 1969 in Dongelberg, Belgium. He is a former Belgian football player and short term member of the Belgian Senate.
In his club career that started in 1987, Wilmots played for Sint-Truidense, KV Mechelen, Standard Liège, Schalke 04, and Bordeaux. At Schalke he helped them to the 1997 UEFA Cup Final. His goal in the first leg was cancelled out by Inter in the second leg, but Schalke went on to win the game on penalties, with Wilmots scoring the decisive kick. He retired in 2003 after his second stint with Schalke.
