Dutch term or phrase: Clubhoer
I have jusst a list of terms about soccer (e.g. "modderveld", "supportersgeweld", "murtje"). I guess they are captions.

[Actually I am translating into Italian, but I do not think I will easily get an answer in the en>it combination, and I just need to know if this is a common dutch term with specific meaning (hopefully) other than "whore of the club"]

Explanation:
I do know that a clubhoer is a typically Dutch word for someone (footballer, trainer) who moves a lot between clubs, in other words is not faithfull, hence the name. There is no translation into English as far as I know. I would leave it untranslated and just explain what it is, if possible.

Thank you all. Finally, with the help received here and in the combinations NL>IT and NL>NL I decided to translate into Italian as "Mercenario", which could be referred both to a player and a supporter

agree  Marijke Mayer: I agree that the asker would be better off posing the question in the Dutch-Italian section. Een hoer is a putana bu the way.
