Wöber expected at Seville great chance to rise

Maximilian Wöber find that he had no other choice than Ajax immediately to leave for Seville. The defender has good hope that he was at the club from the Primera División, however, a rise.

The twenty-year-old Wöber played until the summer of 2017 for Ajax and came since then, to 39 official matches for the Amsterdammers. He leaves after 1.5 years for an amount of 10.5 million euros to Sevilla.

“Here, I was told that it was not looking good for my chances of playing time and at Seville, there is simply more perspective,” says Wöber Saturday, in conversation with Ajax TV.

“Sevilla wants three defenders are going to play and I’m the only one who linksbenig. Of course I will have to work hard to get myself in the base game to play, but the chance of a place in the first eleven is great.”

This season showed Wöber is a useful power. The Austrian was under trainer Erik ten Hag not count on a move, but played in a total of eight matches played and was in the Champions League matches against Bayern Munich (home and away) and AEK Athens at the kick-off.

Since Ajax is still a strong season going through – the people of Amsterdam have reached the eighth finals of the Champions League, the quarter-finals of the TOTO KNVB cup and still in the title – it was for Wöber not easy to get the club halfway through the season to leave.

“It was a very difficult decision for me. Of my parents, I have always learned to be in this kind of situations, a list with positives and negatives. Based on that I have decided to go to Sevilla to leave.”

“I look forward with a very positive feeling back on my time at Ajax, even though it is not me managed to fixed basisspeler to be,” says Wöber. “It was a great time where I learned a lot. I am very happy that I in 2017, the step from Vienna to Amsterdam.”
