Bremen (dpa / lnw) - Werder Bremen's former supervisory board chairman Marco Bode sees similarities in the sporting descent of the Hanseatic League and the situation at Borussia Mönchengladbach. "I also see a certain analogy with Werder. For me, Gladbach was always the over-performer among the traditional clubs in previous years. Now there is a risk that things could go in the wrong direction," said the 52-year-old ex- Soccer professional the "Spiegel".
After participating in the Champions League in 2010/11, Bremen experienced setbacks with financial losses for many years, which led the club to the 2nd division in 2021. In May, the Green-Whites managed to be promoted directly back to the Bundesliga. "One realization for Werder last year was that the 2nd division wasn't as bad as some claimed," said Bode: "Of course it was great to be successful again."
