Allofs stays loyal to Bremen

Former Germany striker Klaus Allofs has extended his contract as the sporting director of upwardly mobile Werder Bremen by three seasons until summer 2012.

Klaus Allofs has extended his contract as sporting director of UEFA Cup challengers Werder Bremen for three years until summer 2012.

'Easy decision'
The 51-year-old former Germany striker has overseen professional football at Werder since 1999, working in tandem with coach Thomas Schaaf to win the domestic double in 2003/04 and earning four consecutive UEFA Champions League campaigns. Allofs, who had been linked with a similar role at FC Bayern München, said: "In my heart it was a relatively easy decision. The talks in recent days were just fine-tuning. The prospect of moving to Bayern was never a really big one."
