Good news for Werder Bremen fans. Portuguese international striker Hugo Almeida is going to remain with the team.

A lot of rumors have been flying around lately that the 26 years old striker might transfer to Sporting CP or Benfica.

Almeida himself commented “I am raring to get a new role in the team”.

That certainly killed off all those rumours.

Almeida’s objective right now is to play a key role for the team. Since his showing in the World Cup, he has become a more solid and stronger player. With his record of 32 goals since joining the Bundesliga league, he certainly is a player to watch for in the future.
