FM13 Wonderkids to watch – Adam Maher

FM 2012 wonderkids

written by Darren Smith

With FM13 just around the corner I thought we should start looking at possible talent for the new game. Every year unearths a player we have never heard of and so, so many hidden gems. Well this year I want to second guess Sports Interactive, creating some real life profiles of hotly tipped wonderkids SI surely can’t ignore. This will be a continuous series of profiles for FM13 wonderkids, I have five in mind so far but will not be taking any recommendations, its just  a small series of players to look out for come FM13’s release, hopefully this will help us all get excited about the new game.

Adam Maher

Club: AZ (Holland)

Position: MC/AMC

Age: 19

Nationality: Moroccan/Dutch

2011/12 league app: 34 (5 goals)

Interested clubs: Man City, AC Milan and Barcelona

Compared too: Wesley Sneijder

Video reel

Currently playing in the Dutch Eredivisie with AZ Alkmaar, Maher is widely touted as the next big thing to come out of Holland.  This wonderkid has an excellent touch and fantastic technique, known for his ball control and 360 vision, Maher has deadly shooting ability that has seen him compared to the great Wesley Sneijder.

Adam Maher’s professional debut came in 2010 as he scored against BATE to become the youngest goalscorer in the Europa League for a Ducth club. But it wasn’t until last season that the playmaker stormed into AZ Alkmaar’s first team on a regular basis. Following Martens’ injury the 19 year old truly impressed scoring 11 goals and assisting around 7 from 52 matches in all competitions.

      Yeah I guess there are similiarities.

  • comment avatar Ryan Daly September 3, 2012

    This kid will be epic on the new game. I have seen him play a few times and he would stand out in most teams. I was shocked not to see him wearing a Man City or Liverpool shirt this season.

      Yeah I am hoping SI will recognize what I and others clearly see as one of the top talents in Dutch Football, otherwise I may have pie on my face so to speak. :)

    I am going to say Lucas Ocampos is another one to watch in FM13. Maybe it’s just me but he never develops into the star-potential I think he has in real-life.

      As mentioned at the top of the post we are not taking recommendations for these real life profiles as there is a limited amount of time to do the ones we want.

      • comment avatar Bill September 14, 2012

        Ok I understand.

  • comment avatar Gaurav Chaddah September 14, 2012

    Looks quality in real life and hope on FM 13 he is as good as he can be with a affordable pricce tag.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith September 14, 2012

      Yeah I think the pricetag would be a bonus but most importantly I hope he has great potential as he seems to warrant it.
