Maceo Rigters

Hello all. Aberdeen fan here. We’ve currently got Maceo Rigters on trial and on checking I see that he was with Willem II last season.

Am I correct in saying he’s a second-striker type player and can also play on the wing?

Any opinions on him? He’s the type of player Aberdeen are screaming out for but is he any good?

Troll? Not by any definition of mine.

Unless.......is Rigters that bad that anyone who asks if he’s any good is automatically deemed a troll?

He played for the bottom side Willem II last season after failing in England. At first he was overweight but after that, he was okay.

Not sure what Aberdeen's ambitions are this season though. If you want to finish 4th, he's not good enough. If you're happy to stay in the SPL, then he could be okay if he stays on weight.


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

Thanks Wally for the response.

I think the target for Aberdeen would be to finish in the Top 5 this season (e.g. the Europa qualification places). We have struggled recently but we have recently brought in the ex-Scotland boss Craig Brown and an excellent assistant in Archie Knox. The calibre of players signed over the summer has been pleasing and we are hopeful of competing in the top half of the table. That said, the players we have signed have all been defensive or midfield players and we have not replaced the most creative players from last season (Sone Aluko and Chris Maguire).

How would you describe Rigters’ playing style? Is he a second-striker or a winger type player? Someone who can create chances? Plays with his back to goal and links play?

This is the type of player who we are missing, Aluko and Maguire created most of our chances last season, and so far this season we have played three games with no goals scored (0-0, 0-1, 0-1 being the results).

Is there anyone more well-known who his style could be compared to?

And was he the stand-out player in (what must have been) a poor Willem II side?

Second striker.

As for playing at the wing he's not quick enough. Because of his overweight he was a bit static but when he lost that he started to run more. He's not really tall which makes he can't play as a deep striker, at Willem II he tried to create his own chances but in my opinion that all was based more on luck than anything else.

He got famous after the World U20 Championship in the Netherlands in 2005 when he suited perfectly in the team. After that he screwed anywhere, compare it a bit with Drenthe in this case.

Can't think of one at this moment.

Not really in my opinion, although no one was.
