Maxime (1999) is the first player we have personally discovered in France. Actually we went there to see another player and Maxime was playing on the opponent’s side with Montpellier HSC, but he immediately caught our attention with his presence, physique, mature and hard (non Dutch) way of defending. We found a way to get in touch with him through our French scout and arranged a trial for him at PSV. After a week we were happy to hear that PSV saw the same qualities in him as we did and they decided to give Maxime a spot in the flagship of their academy, the u19’s.
You would think it is not easy for a 17 year old to, not only leave your parental home, but leave it for another country where you don’t speak the language and has a completely different culture. However, Maxime’s very sociable and open character in addition to his desire and work-ethic to become a professional football player helped him to adapt to his new surroundings quite smoothly.
After having shown his qualities and convincing PSV of his abilities in only one season, they had seen enough and decided to offer Maxime a contract. The start of his adventure away from home chasing his dreams!
