Gnabry, 21, has joined Bayern Munich and the Werder Bremen chairman, claims the player “opted for the easiest way”, writes Sam May.

The departure of the Germany international has left Filbry disappointed, with the player activating an exit clause in the contract.

Gnabry joined Alexander Nouri‘s side from Arsenal, and impressed in the Bundesliga last season despite missing part of the campaign. He had an impressive campaign scoring 11 goals from 27 games, which brought him to the attention of the Bundesliga champions.

”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.”

“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.”

It is understood Bremen will not make a profit from Gnabry, who was who was top scorer at the Rio Olympics last summer. They will however replacement in mind ahead of next season.

“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.”

The move will go through on July 1, and Gnabry will be up against the likes of Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa and exciting French prospect Kingsley Coman, but will be an extra option for Carlo Ancelotti.
