Jan Linssen (19 January 1913 - 2 November 1995) was a Dutch footballer who was active as a forward. Linssen played his whole career at Feijenoord and is known as the player who has never made a single foul. The only referee that fouled him during a match was Dirk Nijs who did this as a joke and to become the only referee that ever fouled Linssen. Linssen played once for the Netherlands national football team, in 1938 against the Dutch Indies and also scored a goal, however the match was not officially recognized as such.
