Report Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread in European Football Posted January 19, 2015 Re: Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread Reportedly had a £5.4 million bid turned down for Alexandru Maxim. Thoughts on him? IMO a very skilled player technically. Certainly one of the best at Stuttgart - which however doesn't neccessary mean that much ( ). His freekicks and corners would certainly help any team with some strong heading-players. Nevertheless it's kind of suspicious that he seems not to be able to become a undisputed regular at Stuttgart - regardles under which coach (Labbadia, Schneider, Stevens, Veh and Stevens again). I personally doubt that his in-game-performances are the reason for this. I rather can imagine, that he isn't the most hardworking player in practice. So the coaches might think that he can't help a team in a relegation battle.
