Stefan Ingo Mauk (born 12 October 1995) is an Australian footballer who plays for A-League club Melbourne City, on loan from Dutch Eerste Divisie club N.E.C. An attacking midfielder, Mauk is also capable of playing as a box-to-box midfielder and as a right winger.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Mauk attended Henley High School.[3] Mauk's father, Georg, died of cancer when Mauk was 15.[4]

Club career[edit]

Mauk joined Melbourne City as a sixteen-year-old in October 2012, signing a two year contract after spending time at the Australian Institute of Sport.[5]

Mauk returned to Adelaide, his hometown, in January 2016 after signing with Adelaide United in a trade deal for Osama Malik, who moved to Melbourne.[6] He was given the A-League Young Footballer of the Year award for 2016–17.[7]

On 19 July 2016, Mauk signed a three-year contract at NEC in the Dutch Eredivisie.[8] He made his competitive debut for the side in August 2016 against PEC Zwolle, but was substituted off at halftime in a 1–1 draw.[9] Mauk subsequently fell out of favour at NEC, leading to reports that he would be loaned out in January 2017.[10] No move eventuated, and Mauk remained at the club in May 2017, but still yet to add to his early-season appearance, when manager Peter Hyballa was sacked.[11] Mauk finished the season with three appearances in all competitions as NEC were relegated to the Eerste Divisie, after which Mauk declared his intention to find a new club, citing that he wanted to play more regularly and in a different league.[12] Mauk returned to Australia on a season-long loan deal, linking with former club Melbourne City for the 2017–18 season.[13]

International career[edit]

Mauk was first called up to the Australian squad for a friendly against England played on 27 May 2016.[14]
