Tim Cahill exit creates 'opportunity' for Melbourne City youth - Stefan Mauk

Shock at Tim Cahill's departure from Melbourne City has been replaced by hope that the A-League club can march on without the Socceroos legend.

Cahill walked out of the club in the build-up to Sunday's defeat of Central Coast Mariners, with City consigned to ripping up the 38-year-old's contract.

While Cahill had telegraphed the move after helping Australia reach next year's World Cup, City teammate Stefan Mauk said he was staggered to hear the news.

That push might not include Anthony Caceres, however, who is reportedly hoping to move to the United Arab Emirates.

Mauk, 21, after leaving City in January last year following 47 appearances, has returned on a one-year loan deal from NEC in the Netherlands.

Stefan Mauk, 20, helped Adelaide to an unprecedented A-League double after joining them in January 2016.

Adelaide United attacking midfielder Stefan Mauk has signed for Dutch football club NEC Nijmegen.

The 20-year-old played 13 A-League matches for the Reds since joining Guillermo Amor's championship-winning side in January, claiming the club's Rising Star award in the process.

That form has earned the former Melbourne City man a move to the Eredivisie, where NEC finished 10th last season.

"My aim was always to try and get over to Europe, ever since I was a little kid," Mauk said in a statement.

Australia to test debutants Jamie Maclaren, Stefan Mauk vs. England

Ange Postecoglou expects the intense pressure of facing a pre-tournament England in their friendly at Sunderland's Stadium of Light later this month will unearth some new Socceroos stars.
