Former United defender Mikael Silvestre talks about Werder Bremen collapse


In an exclusive interview with Netbet, ex-Manchester United star Mikael Silvestre opened up about his former clubs. The player shared his thoughts on his former side Werder Bremen and the state of competition in Bundesliga.

Silvestre, who has won the Champions League with the Red Devils was not surprised by the relegation of Werder Bremen. The centre-back blamed the mismanagement as the reason for the relegation of Bremen to Bundesliga 2.

He also included the other sides like Schalke and Hamburg among the clubs that are poorly run. Silvestre but believes that these clubs can make it back to Bundesliga and praised the dedication of their fanbases.


Werder Bremen have not been at their best over the last few seasons and came close to relegation in the 2019/20 season. However, the four-time German Champions ran out of luck as they were relegated in the last season, for only the second time in their club history.

Silvestre was sad with the situation of Bremen, a club where he played for two seasons. However, the former France international was quick to point out the downward trajectory the club has been going on in the last few seasons. Silvestre also told about how great his experience in Germany was, despite not being able to play his best due to injuries.

Even though giants like Schalke, Bremen and Hamburg were relegated, Silvestre believes Bundesliga is still competitive. He also believes that Bayern Munich’s dominance over the league will also not be a big factor. With loyal fans and good infrastructure, the league is going to be in a good position.
