"We've naturally been following Maxi for years," SCF personnel boss Klemens Hartenbach said in a statement, "His way of thinking and style of play fits in very well with the SC. He's had to traverse some very difficult phases at Werder. We're quite pleased that everything has worked out at such short notice and that we can tackle the challenges that lie ahead of us together."
It is not yet known whether Eggestein will be available for his new team ahead of Saturday's match against Dortmund. The midfielder is at the Schwarzwald Stadion giving his first interview now, and thus may be eligible to absolve the final two training sessions.
