Nevertheless, Maxi is far more concerned with results than style of play at the moment, which will be the first steps of progressing to more consistency. "When you have more confidence, you can play with more courage," he said.
Head coach Florian Kohfeldt has given Maxi Eggestein more responsibility with a view to the 2020/21 campaign, but has reiterated on multiple occasions that he does not wish to rest everything on his shoulders. However, despite his relative youth, or perhaps because of it, one thing is certain: Eggestein epitomises Werder’s rebuilding process. "We have shown that we’ve been working on our style of football," he said, praising Sunday’s performance, and added: "You can see this season that no matter who is playing for us, everyone is blending in." The name of the game for this young Werder team is: rediscovering the Green-White way of playing attractive attacking football and pursuing this consistently. "We have a really young squad now, and a whole new hierarchy, this all needs a bit of time to become the norm," said Maximilian Eggestein. The home grown talent’s potential to become a real leader at SVW is indisputable.
