"I had a wonderful time as a footballer. I experienced a number of beautiful and emotional moments. I will always have that with me," said Borowski, who would now like to take on other work within the SV Werder club. "Werder is my club. I had some good talks with management. I think we can say more in about four weeks about we are thinking. But I will definitely be taking a break until January to spend more time with the family," said "Boro".
Borowski's last appearance in Green-Whites gear came on the final game day last season in the home match against FC Schalke 04. The Neubrandenburg native entered the Werder academy as a 16-year-old and debuted in the professional team on 18 August 2001 in the home match against TSV 1860 München. He tallied 32 goals in his 236 Bundesliga games with 26 of the goals coming in 210 matches with Bremen. He also appeared in 26 contests for FC Bayern München during the 2008-09 season. The midfielder also played in 45 matches in the Champions League, UEFA Cup and Europa League as well as 36 times in the German DFB Cup. His biggest success came in 2004 when Werder Bremen won the German league and cup titles. He scored two goals in the 2004 German Cup final. Borowski also helped Germany to a third place finish at the 2006 World Cup and was runner-up at the 2008 European Championship.
