Neuer and Ulreich extend deals at Bayern Munich

-

Bayern Munich have handed goalkeepers Manuel Neuer and Sven Ulreich 12-month extensions to their current deals, tying both men to the German champions until June 2025.

Neuer has successfully overcome a serious leg break sustained while skiing at the end of last year to regain his place as Bayern number one, continuing a remarkable career that has seen him twice win the treble of Champions League, Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal in one season.

The 37-year-old told the club’s official website: “I’m happy to be staying at FC Bayern for another year. After my long injury, I’m back in full swing. It’s immense fun for me to be on the pitch with this team.

“I’m sure that, together with the fans, we can achieve our big goals in the coming years – and obviously the 2025 Champions League final in Munich is one of them. Knowing that I still have Sven by my side makes it even nicer.”

Ulreich will revert to a back-up role but it’s something he has become accustomed to over the years.

He said: “When I came to FC Bayern from Stuttgart in 2015, I never would’ve thought I’d stay here for so long.

“Now I’ve extended my contract until 2025 and will continue to do my bit to help us achieve our aims. I’m pleased to continue working together with Manuel and also Daniel Peretz and our goalkeeping coach Michael Rechner. I’ve had much more in common with Manuel than just a passion for football – we’re friends.”
