After an exceptional overseas debut season, during which he bombed no less than 30 goals in 31 appearances, finished as the king of Austrian league goals and entered the top ten in the Golden Shoe race, Sean Weissman aiming for the next goal. “We are conducting a marathon of open and transparent conversations with Wolfsberger leaders about the future,” clarified Roy Raver, the Israeli striker’s representative.
When asked if Weissman would leave Wolfsberger a year before the end of his contract and if so to which league, his representative replied: “During surgery it does not make sense to ask the doctor what the patient’s condition is.” As is well known, among the groups that have been mentioned in the context of the Israeli are, among others, Aston Villa, Glatsray, Celtic and Braga. According to reports, the Austrians are demanding about ten million euros for the striker, who was absent from the team’s training due to the fact that his wife is kneeling to give birth and it was decided to allow him to stay with her, while the uncertainty about his future also plays a part. “Eden is fine, we are still waiting,” Weissman said.
Despite the rather high price tag, certainly in the days of Corona, the fact that Weissman is ending his contract next summer is likely to lead to Wolfsberger eventually being flexible and reducing transfer fees. Meanwhile, newcomer Eliel Peretz began training in the Wolfsberger uniform and even scored in his first practice game. “We will have fun with him. He’s a tall player, which is a good thing for our small team. He can play with his back to the goal and keep the ball well “, declared coach Ferdinand Feldhofer, who gave the link that came from Hapoel Hadera the nickname” Eli “.
Lino Hyduk, a player agent who was involved in completing the deal from the Austrian side, added: “I believe that Eliel will develop and integrate well, even in big clubs from Wolfsberger. Even if Austria Vienna had eventually submitted a bid, it would not have been relevant. Peretz saw that it worked so well for Weissman. Coach Feldhofer worked very hard for him. The general conditions are great, the club is recognized and also participates in the European arena. ”
