Brands stated that he is very happy with the transfer of Maher. “It is a long-cherished desire to get Adam. With him arriving, we have a very talented player that fits into the philosophy of PSV Eindhoven. We are very happy with this deal, because we really think he can contribute massively to the future success of this club.”
Maher tortured his new club PSV in the KNVB Beker final on 9th May this year, and AZ Alkmaar ended running out 2-1 winners that day.
