Pro terms for Marco Friedl
FC Bayern have signed talent Marco Friedl on a long-term professional contract. The 18-year-old has agreed pro terms with the German record champions from 1 July 2017 through 30 June 2021. The defender currently plays for the FC Bayern U-19s, but has recently trained with the pros on a regular basis. The Austria U-19 international also joined Carlo Ancelotti's men in Doha for the winter training camp in January.
"We're happy we've secured Marco Friedl's services over the long term. He's turned in outstanding displays in our youth teams and recently demonstrated his quality in the pro squad programme. We're confident he'll make the grade at FC Bayern," declared assistant coach Hermann Gerland. "The most recent developments on the field and especially the results of our U-19s and U-17s show we're on the right track with our youth programme," Gerland added.
