Serge Gnabry criticised by Werder Bremen chairman over decision to leave

Serge Gnabry has decided to leave Werder Bremen after just one season at the club.

Werder Bremen chairman Klaus Filbry has criticised Serge Gnabry for leaving the Bundesliga club after one season, saying the winger "opted for the easiest way."

Gnabry, 21, activated an exit clause in the contract he signed after moving from Arsenal last summer, leaving Filbry disappointed.

"I would have hoped for some more perseverance from Serge," Filbry told Werderstube. "Maybe he opted for the easiest way. I think it's a pity, but I wish him all the best.

"I was hoping that he could imagine a longer stay at Bremen -- and the talks we had also suggested that was an option."

Gnabry played well enough in the first half of the season to earn a Germany call-up, but he only started one game in the final two months of the campaign

"He did not really get going again after his injury. Maybe that made him change his mind," Filbry said. "The decision made by the coach [to drop Gnabry] were absolutely understandable. We were successful and won."

Filbry also said Bremen would not stand to make a profit from selling Gnabry.

"We got him a year ago for a certain sum; now we're selling him again for a certain sum," he added. "With the salary he's got in the meantime, it's almost a zero-sum game for us, thus opening up no new scope for action."
