The Werder Bremen defender is working to give “more and more” to his team, as the team’s hope to play in Europe next season is still alive.

Swedish left-back Ludwig Augustinsson moved to Werder Bremen in the German Bundesliga in the summer of 2017.

Since then he has enjoyed his time with the club, as they are trying to qualify to the European competitions.

“I’m always looking to improve. I’m only 25 and I know that I have a lot of room to develop further, together with the team,” he said to the club’s official website.

“My mentality is to always be working and giving more and more. Because of small injuries this season, I’ve had to learn to pace myself and take a step back.”

He added: “I can’t play to my limit for the whole time. I have to be more effective and more intelligent to be fit at the right time, especially as I get older.”

“I want to decide games more often. I think that my development is going in the right direction. We’ll get together after the season and analyze how to improve my game.”

“He’s doing what we expect of him. We’re always saying to him that he has the quality and should be brave,” said Bremen’s coach Florian Kohfeldt about the defender.

The Swedish professional career started in 2011 with IF Brommapojkarna, in 2013 he moved to Goteborg, and in 2015 he played for Copenhagen in Denmark, until 2017 when he moved to the Bundesliga side.
