Marko Arnautovic and Eljero Elia were suspended for disciplinary reasons.
SV Werder Bremen have suspended Marko Arnautovic and Eljero Elia from training and game competition with immediate effect. Police pulled over Arnautovic at 3 a.m. Friday morning on the A1 highway to Osnabrück for high speeding. When Arnautovic was stopped, Elia pulled over his car as well. Alcohol was not involved in the incident.

"We are deeply disappointed. We need players who identify themselves 100 percent with their career and job with SV Werder. Whoever is out on the highway at 3 a.m. two days before an important match cannot be one of those players. We have to take a clear stance," said Werder manager Thomas Eichin.

"We cannot tolerate this kind of unprofessional behaviour in the preparations for our match in Leverkusen and are discharging the players until the situation is clarified calmly with all involved," said head coach Thomas Schaaf about the decision.
