In the midst of the Corona crisis, FC Bayern Munich extended the next contract of a current regular player: whiz star Alphonso Davies remains loyal to the record champions until June 30, 2025.
Davies’ first major contract with the current Bundesliga leaders was still valid until June 30, 2023. In the midst of the current compulsory break, the Canadian, who was contracted by the Vancouver Whitecaps in summer 2018 to anticipate winter 2018/19 for the total amount of 19 million euros, has done so with nails. His new working paper now dates to 2025, which Davies has virtually announced himself on Twitter: on the official FCB channel, the 19-year-old flocks his own jersey with the numbers 2, 0, 2, 5.
Shortly afterwards, the Munich-based company also published a picture from the office, where Davies puts his signature with a ballpoint pen – of course equipped with a protective mask in Corona times. They also have board boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, sports director Hasan Salihamidzic and board member Oliver Kahn at his side.
Davies “delights our fans”
“Alphonso has developed very well at FC Bayern”, Rummenigge says on the club’s website about the early expansion of the employment relationship – and at the same time about the next contract extension these days after Thomas Muller. “He has earned this contract extension with his convincing performance. We are happy that he will stay with FC Bayern in the long term. He not only inspires our fans with his style of play, but also with his style off the pitch.”
“Anyone who can play at top level at FC Bayern at such a young age can have a great career ahead of them.” – Oliver Kahn on Alphonso Davies
Davies himself, who is already zealous with pushing left-back / winger this season to 21 league games (six were still in 2018/19), is “very happy about his forward-looking step. FC Bayern is one of the best clubs in the world – and for me it was a dream come true to be able to play here. I felt comfortable from day one. I want to win as many titles as possible with this club. The mentality of always wanting to win everything is the DNA of FC Bavaria.”
And Davies also embodies this DNA, as Kahn emphasizes: “Anyone who can consistently play at top level at FC Bayern from such a young age can have a great career ahead of us. We are all happy to have him with us in the long term. He brings an incredible amount, and we are sure that we will still enjoy it a lot. ”
