Werner stays with Werder if he stays up in the Bundesliga

When he took over as head coach of Werder Bremen in autumn 2021, the big goal of promotion was a long way off – but in the end Ole Werner led the traditional club back to the Bundesliga. So it’s no wonder that the people of Bremen are more than satisfied with the 34-year-old – and would like to work with him on a long-term basis.

Werner’s contract with Werder only runs for one year, i.e. until summer 2023, but the paper contains a special clause that gives the club and coach a certain amount of security. If Werner and his team manage to stay up in the top flight in the 2022/23 season, his contract will be automatically extended by another year until June 30, 2024. The “kicker” reported about it first.

In the question of coaching, the Bremen team is calm for the time being, and despite the much-celebrated promotion, there are currently no plans within the club to extend Werner’s contract prematurely. Werder had had bad experiences with this in the past, when coaches like Viktor Skripnik, Alexander Nouri and Florian Kohfeldt were fired for lack of success, but their contracts still had long terms. The resulting economic burden has made the club cautious. Ole Werner, too, is said to be able to live very well with the clause in his contract.
