Argentine striker Franco Di Santo has offered to help Werder Bremen in their quest to return to the German Bundesliga ahead of next season. Bremen were demoted from the Bundesliga to Bundesliga II at the end of last season and they are bidding to return to the competition after just one season in the second division as far as club football in Germany is concerned.
32-year-old Argentine striker Franco Di Santo is on the payroll of San Lorenzo in his native Argentina and he’s certain that he can play a big role in getting Werder Bremen back into the German top flight. He had offered to help Bremen a year ago before their relegation from the German Bundesliga last season.
Franco Di Santo narrated how he tried to reach Frank Baumann who’s the sporting director at Werder Bremen and that he didn’t get any response from him or the club when he did one year ago. Ex-Chelsea, Wigan Athletic and Blackburn Rovers striker thereafter said that he could have just told him that he was not needed rather than the silence when he tried to reach out.
In his response, Werder Bremen sporting director Baumann said that he replied Franco Di Santo through a third party once he heard about the offer from the striker and that he believes that the Argentine still has his old cell number. The sporting director went on to say that a return to Bremen for Franco Di Santo is not an issue for the club then and now.
