A talented left back from Brazil who at Ajax was destined for great things and wanted by many clubs. Bought by Inter on a free in January and loaned out he will be with us next season. Maybe the future LB and finally the solution to our problems at that posistion
some info on him from Ajax-usa.com:
Maxwell Scherrer Cabelino Andrade (born Vila Velha, Brazil, 27 August 1981) is neither a Dutchman nor did he come all the way through the youth ranks. Yet, it feels like he is a true Ajacied. He was only 19 years old when Ajax signed him on 13 June 2001, after having seen the stylish left-footer play with his youth team of Cruzeiro Belo Horizonte at a youth tournament in The Netherlands. Maxwell had never seen first team action at that point.
He made his official début for Ajax in the very first league game of his first season, at home against Roda JC on 19 August 2001. He very briefly lost his spot in the fall of 2001, but apart from that he never disappeared from Ajax's starting line-up in the next four seasons: he had 24 Eredivisie appearances in 2001-2002, 30 in 2002-2003, 31 in 2003-2004 and 29 in 2004-2005, until that fatal cup game in Tilburg. His three year deal was extended until the summer of 2006 on 11 Febuary 2004, during what was arguably his best season as an Ajacied: the 2003-2004 campaign, at the end of which Ajax lifted the championship shield and Maxwell theV VCS Player Of The Year Award.
Maxwell had 114 Eredivisie appearances for Ajax and he also played 11 domestic cup matches and 31 games in UEFA competition. That's 156 official games for Ajax-1, in which he netted ten times: nine goals in the Dutch league and one in 'Europe'. He won two Dutch championships (2002 and 2004) with Ajax, as well as one Amstel Cup (2002).
Maxwell hardly ever made headlines, but was a stylish, gracious Ajacied and a true gentleman on and off the pitch
