Pro contracts for Benko and Dorsch
FC Bayern has offered professional terms to two of its most promising and talented young players. Fabian Benko (17) and Niklas Dorsch (17) from the U-23 reserve team have each signed a one-year apprentice pro contract through to 30 June 2016, followed by full professional contracts from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2018.
"We're pleased to have secured these two major talents for FC Bayern," commented sporting director Matthias Sammer, "they have performed with distinction in the FC Bayern youth section up to now and we believe they will continue to develop well at our club. Fabian Benko is a very creative attacking player, technically skilled and with a strong left foot. Niklas Dorsch is a more defensive midfielder who has demonstrated leadership qualities in his teams at FC Bayern and in German junior national teams."
