Muller to play into 25th year with Bayern after signing new deal

-

Thomas Muller wants to be a “foundation” for Bayern Munich after signing a 12-month contract extension at the German champions.

Muller has spent his entire career in Bavaria after joining the club as a 10-year-old, making 684 appearances, scoring 237 goals and providing 261 assists.

He is now contracted to Bayern until June 2025 and seems likely to break the club record for appearances currently held by Sepp Maier with 706. The 34-year-old has won the Bundesliga title 12 times and the Champions League twice, as well as the 2014 World Cup with Germany.

“I’m happy my journey at FC Bayern is continuing,” he told the club’s official website after committing to a 25th year.

“I want to play my part in us remaining successful, both as a team and the whole club. It’s important to me to be a foundation and to help steer the team in the right direction. I want to excite our fans with goals, helping create goals, my love of the game, my passion for football – and hopefully with many more titles.”

Bayern sporting director Christoph Freund added: “We’re very pleased that Thomas Müller will be staying at FC Bayern for another season. He’s a leader both on and off the pitch, always a role model and incredibly valuable for the entire team.

“Thomas pushes every team with his open and positive manner on and off the pitch. The way he plays is extremely clever, for the team, and he’s very versatile in where he can play. Thomas is also almost never injured, always there – just quality and reliability personified.”
