Bremen suspend Arnautovic and Elia

29 April 2013 15:02

Werder Bremen duo Marko Arnautovic and Eljero Elia have been suspended by the club for the rest of the season for speeding on a motorway.

The Austrian forward and the Dutch midfielder were

stopped for speeding in separate cars last week, leading the club to initially impose

a temporary ban.

However, Bremen have now extended it to include all training

sessions and matches until the end of the season, despite the club being in a

precarious position in the Bundesliga.

Currently in 14th place, the club's 32-year

stay in Germany's top flight could soon be at an end and sports director Thomas

Eichin said in a statement that all players needed to be focused on avoiding

the drop.

"In the final stretch of the season we need all players

to be fully focused," he said.

"We have made it clear to Marko Arnautovic and

Eljero Elia that their behaviour damaged the team in this phase. Both will

train separately until the end of the season."

Bremen face 17th-placed Hoffenheim in a

crucial game at the bottom of the table.
