“Didn’t really want to go up with Werder”



"Didn't really want to go up with Werder"

Werder Bremen’s midfielder Leonardo Bittencourt has admitted in retrospect that after being relegated to the Bundesliga a year ago, immediate promotion with the Hanseatic League was not his top priority. “If I hadn’t injured my knee, I probably would have found a new club,” said the 28-year-old DAZN-Podcast.

However, due to an inner ligament injury, Bittencourt was only able to start the season in mid-October – six weeks after the transfer window closed.

Ultimately, the former U21 international has no regrets: “We get along so well as a team that we can say our opinions to each other’s faces without offending anyone.”
