Maximilian Eggestein says he has no plans of leaving Werder Bremen, although he doesn't want to rule out anything.


"In football, you never know what's going to happen. In general, I don't think our squad for the new season is complete yet. We'll see who else comes and who else leaves. But I'm not thinking about saying goodbye, and I haven't had contact with any other clubs," the midfielder told Kicker.

Eggestein caught the eye with his performances in the 2018/19 season and was linked with a move away from the club, but opted to stay and extend his contract at Weserstadion instead.

Although the past campaign didn't go as expected for Werder and Eggestein, the 23-year-old insists he doesn't regret not taking the next step in his career last summer.

"You could philosophize about that now, but I don't. I'm not unhappy with my situation. On the contrary, I'm still happy at Werder, and I'm doing everything I can to ensure that the coming season will go better for the club and me personally.

"I've always believed that having a career plan doesn't make any sense. I always want the greatest possible success with my team in the here and now. It doesn't help to think about what could have happened a year ago or what could happen in a year's time," said Eggestein.

Eggestein's contract with Werder expires in 2023.
