Reinier "René" Lambertus van de Kerkhof (born 16 September 1951 in Helmondmarker, Noord-Brabantmarker) is a former Dutchmarker football player, who played for FC Twente and PSV Eindhoven.

René and his twin brother Willy were squad members of the Dutch national team that made the World Cup final in 1974 and became key players in the team that made the 1978 final. Overall, René appeared 47 times for his country, scoring five goals.

He is well remembered due to the incident before the 1978 World Cup final, when the opponent Argentinians objected to the bandage he wore on his injured forearm. Despite the bandage had been passed by FIFAmarker and worn in previous matches, the referee, Italian Sergio Gonella vacillated, while the Dutch players threatened to walk off the field. Finally an extra layer of padding was applied to the bandage as a solution, and the match could start.

He was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004.
