Werder Bremen can possibly plan more with 250,000 euros than expected a few weeks ago. According to a spokesman in front of the Bremen district court, the green-whites won against the consulting agency of the former SVW professional Davy Klaassen. At least in the first instance.
Davy Klaassen played for Werder Bremen for a good two years. With the North Germans, the Dutchman managed to save himself in the relegation after the 2019/2020 season before he finally joined Ajax Amsterdam after three games in the 20/21 season at the beginning of October – in the transfer phase extended by the corona pandemic.
Since Klaassen had a clause in his contract that guaranteed his consulting agency a fixed sum of 250,000 euros if he was still under contract with Werder Bremen after August 31, the Hanseatic League should actually have paid the said sum to the agents . But Corona apparently also confused this passage.
“The chamber shares the view of Werder Bremen. The deadline for the commission has also been postponed due to the postponement of the transfer period. That is why Werder does not have to pay,” court spokesman Jan Stegemann explained to “Bild”.
“The court interprets the contract in such a way that August 31st is not the deadline for the commission, but rather the end of the transfer period is meant. And that has been postponed,” Stegemann stated.
Since Klaassen’s transfer to his home club Ajax Amsterdam in October, the midfielder’s consulting agency, which is run by former Bundesliga professional Sören Lerby, has demanded the said sum from the current second division club. Apparently for free.
However, the last word in the Causa Klaassen has not yet been spoken. “The verdict is not final yet. The agency can appeal, but that has not yet happened. Then the case would go to the higher regional court,” said the court spokesman.
