He could have moved to Hungary, where he was invited by the club of Rudi Požeg Vancaš, but Max Watson is currently in a phase of life where he apparently rejects offers. He turned down the Hungarian offer, and he also rejected the offer from Maribor. Maribor wanted to keep the defender from Sweden at Ljudski vrt, with a new contract on the table. It was there but remained unsigned. Max Watson has apparently decided to leave Styria sooner or later: either in the winter or in the summer transfer window.
“It’s no secret that we are looking for a central defender because Max Watson currently does not want to extend his contract,” confirmed Ante Šimundža, the coach of Maribor, to Delo. He has been testing players for some time who could replace Watson – Luuk Kluiters is also with the team during preparations. Ante Šimundža holds a high opinion of the Dutchman, but he admits that he wants to further evaluate him.
It should be added that in the winter transfer window, Štajerska could also lose Luka Uskoković, who is of interest to some foreign clubs. Therefore, it could quickly happen that Maribor will be left without two central defenders before the start of the second half of the season…
