Contrary to earlier report when it looked set that Markus Anfang was going to be Bremen coach, Kicker states that Darmstadt 98 were "extremely irritated" by how Bremen were negotiating and most particularly the transfer fee of 250,000 euros.
The transfer fee was ultimately the sticking point in negotiations and the Hessians weren't pleased that Bremen wanted to pay in instalments.
Werder Bremen will still be looking for a new coach and Markus Anfang will remain at Darmstadt.
