Werder Bremen: No Sarpreet Singh transfer! That’s what Clemens Fritz says!

Bremen – Everything was already clear with FC Bayern Munich. SV Werder Bremen had already reached an agreement with the player – and yet, surprisingly, Sarpreet Singh will not switch to the newly promoted Bundesliga team. “We have refrained from an obligation,” says Werder’s head of professional football Clemens Fritz to the DeichStube – and emphasizes: “It’s a shame because he’s an interesting player.” The reason for the sudden rethinking in Bremen? Singh’s pubic arthritis, because of which the 23-year-old had already missed the entire final phase of the past second division season as a loan player from SSV Jahn Regensburg – and because of which he will continue to be absent for a long time.

Last Thursday, Singh traveled to Bremen from his native New Zealand, where he completed his rehabilitation. A day later, detailed sports medical examinations were due there in the practice run by the Paracelsus Clinic in the Weser Stadium. After that, at least according to the plan of everyone involved, Singh am Osterdeich should sign a long-term contract and his move should be officially announced.

A transfer fee for the offensive player had already been negotiated with Bayern Munich, which, according to information from DeichStube was almost 400,000 euros. money that Werder Bremen didn’t want to spend after all. Clemens Fritz: “We are still completely convinced of Sarpreet as a person and as a sport, but we do not have the financial means to sign a player who is not directly available to us.”

Werder Bremen Singh’s pubic arthritis was known from the start. “We had been in contact with the player for a long time and of course we knew about the injury. That’s why we wanted to have him examined in Bremen as early as possible,” says Fritz. In general, however, the club was optimistic until the very end that the New Zealand international would be fit enough and the transfer would be feasible. As a reminder, last week club boss Klaus Filbry even publicly announced the commitment of a “very exciting, creative player”. “We will announce another transfer shortly, this time in the offensive area,” said the 55-year-old during a Charity event held by the newly founded Florian Wellmann Foundation in the Weser Stadium. Then came the examinations on Friday and the corresponding consultations with the medical department, after which those responsible for Werder became very disillusioned.

Sarpreet Singhwho is in a Bremen hotel on Werders waited for a decision and was said to have expected a move to the newly promoted Bundesliga team until the very end, finally learned on Saturday that Werder Bremen has decided against his commitment. He then left directly for Munich, where he will now continue his rehabilitation.

For Werder Bremen meanwhile, the search for an attacking winger continues. Head coach Ole Werner needs such a type of player in order to be able to change his preferred 3-5-2 system in Bremen into a 4-3-3. According to information from DeichStube stands St. Pauli’s Daniel-Kofi Kyereh is still high on the wish list for attacking, but Bremen should still only have outsider chances, to be able to sign the 26-year-old, who is hotly courted by several clubs.
