Ballack to take decision over future soon
Thursday 24 June 2010
Germany international midfielder Michael Ballack says that he will make a decision where he will play his football next season within the next two weeks.
The 33-year-old was allowed to leave Chelsea at the end of last season, while he is currently sitting out the World Cup finals in South Africa due to an ankle injury.
Ballack has been linked with a number of clubs back in his homeland, including former employers Bayer Leverkusen, while Sevilla are also rumoured to be an interested party.
"I am able to confirm that I am going to make up my mind quickly," Ballack told Bild. "There will be a decision on my future in the next two weeks."
Ballack spent four seasons with Chelsea, having made his name in the Bundesliga with first Bayer Leverkusen and then Bayern Munich.
