Frings confirms Werder departure

Frings confirms Werder departure

Former Germany international Torsten Frings is leaving Werder Bremen after a six-year second spell at the Bundesliga club.
The 34-year-old midfielder's contract expires in June and Frings said Tuesday he was not offered an extension.
Frings told local newspaper Kreiszeitung Syke: "I have to accept that. It's a shame, I'd rather have bid farewell with a more successful season."
He was one of Bremen's top earners, with a reported salary of more than (EURO)4 million ($5.6 million).
Frings said "I was recently accused by the public of only thinking of money and not being willing to make concessions. That's not true. It's not about money for me. I had no offer to reject or accept, because there weren't any."
Werder was set to hold a news conference later Tuesday.
