Retrieved 13 August With Bayer looking to rebuild and therefore in need of players that can lead both on and off the pitch, Sven Bender must have realised that moving to Leverkusen would be a perfect opportunity to gain regular playing time.
Another factor is, of course, his twin brother Lars. Sven was the first to leave the club joining Borussia Dortmund ahead of the season.
Playing in Leverkusen and Dortmund meant that the two twins could live in relative proximity to one another.
There was always hope that the two could play together in the German national team and ahead of the European Championships the dream of the two Benders playing together was almost accomplished.
Both twins were called up in the extended squad, but in the end, only Lars was given a ticket to the Euros in Poland and Ukraine. The dream of playing together was then accomplished at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro where Sven and Lars led a young German national team to the final and only narrowly missed out on winning the gold medal for their country.
Perhaps it was at the tournament in Brazil that the dream of playing together more regularly was fostered among the twins.
That dream may have been given nourishment when Sven Bender only played few minutes last season and therefore considered a change of scenery.
