Thomas Muller contract extension reactions
Thomas Müller: “I’m delighted to have extended my contract with FC Bayern Munich until 2024 today. The journey we’ve been on since I joined the FCB academy in 2000 has been a fantastic success story up to now. It gives me immense pleasure to hold up the red colours year after year, on and off the pitch – even if the wind blows in your face from time to time. So, let’s keep going together!”
Oliver Kahn, CEO: “Thomas Müller is an icon who wears the club badge in his heart. FC Bayern has always been characterised by continuity. And therefore we’re pleased that we’ve managed to extend the contract of this important player. He’s someone who assumes leadership and is also an important character in the dressing room with his personality.”
Hasan Salihamidzic, board member for sport: “You can’t imagine Thomas Müller without FC Bayern – nor FC Bayern without Thomas Müller. That’s why we’re very happy that Thomas has extended his contract until summer 2024. Thomas is a leader who’s hungry for success, and a role model on and off the pitch who embodies FC Bayern better than anyone.”
