Manuel Friedrich is still undecided as to whether he will leave Mainz.
German international defender Manuel Friedrich is still undecided as to whether he will leave Mainz at the end of the season.
The 27-year-old is contracted to the Bruchweg Stadion outfit until June 2008 but media reports claimed he had received several offers from other clubs.
However, Friedrich is yet to make a final decision on his future and insists he could extend his stay at Mainz.
"I have not yet said that I will be leaving," Friedrich told Kicker.
"I'm still thinking things over - whether it would make sense to move to another team or to commit my future to Mainz."
Friedrich admits Mainz coach Jurgen Klopp will play a major role in his final decision.
He added: "If he says there is no point me making a move, or joining a particular club, then I will listen to what he has to say."
