Bayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer has signed a one-year contract extension with the Bundesliga winners that will keep him at the club until 2024, the club announced on Monday.
Since joining Bayern from Schalke in 2011, the 36-year-old goalkeeper has won 10 consecutive league championships, two Champions League trophies, and a slew of other domestic and European honors.
“Manuel is a defining character in FC Bayern’s history,” stated chief executive Oliver Kahn in a statement. “(He) has been setting the global standard for years.” Being consistently world-class is a great accomplishment.”
Germany captain Neuer, who has made almost 470 appearances for Bayern in all competitions, is the club’s second longest-serving player, behind forward Thomas Mueller, who extended his contract until 2024.
“We’ll have a really excellent squad again, and we’ll be able to contend for every championship,” Neuer added. “As a goalie, captain, and leader, I want to be a support and a major role in helping us achieve our enormous objectives.”
“We aim to prolong our winning streak and fight for the German Cup and Champions League again.”
