Bayern Munich Captain Manuel Neuer extended his contract with the reigning Bundesliga champions until 2023.
The news was announced via an official FC Bayern English tweet.
“During the weeks of the shutdown for the coronavirus pandemic, I didn’t want to make a decision because nobody knew if, when and how Bundesliga football would continue,” the goalkeeper said.
Neuer, a winner of the 2014 World Cup with Germany, has now extended his contract with Bayern to sign a new three-year deal:
“It was important for me to continue working with our goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic. Now this has been resolved, I look to the future with great optimism.
“I feel very comfortable and at home in Bavaria. FC Bayern are one of Europe’s top football clubs.”
The 34-year-old joined from the Schalke 04 club in 2011 and won seven league titles, five DFB Cups and the Champions League in 2013.
