Anthony Ujah’s assist in the last game of the Bundesliga season against Frankfurt, saved Bremen from relegation. Unfortunately, there are numerous speculation in German press about what happens next to his career at Bremen. Will he stay or go ?
Ujah has had a difficult time this season as he became a joker during the second half. The coach of Bremen, Victor Skripnik, adopted a 4-1-4-1 system that favored Claudio Pizarro. Pizarro is important for Bremen. He did score some important goals. In fact, the Werder Bremen management have extended his contract for one more year.
The question that has not been answered is: what happens to Ujah ? Will he be content to stay on the bench this coming season ? Ujah said in an interview with Kreiszeitung “i want to stay” He also said that he is willing to learn from Pizarro. Adding that although, there was a mega deal from China during the winter break, he wants to stay in Bremen.
However, things have changed in Bremen. Thomas Eichin is no longer the sports director and there is a report of a new beginning with the possibility of players for sale. This headline, “will there be a big change in the team ?” has been in the news during this transfer season.
Apparently, Ujah is not satisfied.SportBILD wrote that Ujah might be sold to China or England. Klaus Filbry, head of Business for Werder Bremen stated that there were no plans to sell all the players.
Ujah scored 11 goals this season. If he stays in Bremen, he has to contend with living in the shadow of Pizarro for another season. Is it in the best interest for Ujah? I doubt it. He has to go to a club, where his services are needed and appreciated. He needs regular playing time, to be considered for the Nigeria Super Eagles. Therefore, i would suggest for him to leave.
