Goalkeeper Johannes Schenk signs professional contract
Goalkeeper Johannes Schenk has signed a professional contract with FC Bayern until 2024. The 19-year-old came to the German record champions' U16 youth team from 1. FC Nürnberg in 2017 and featured in nine Regionalliga games for the reserves last season.
Hasan Salihamidžić, FC Bayern board member for sport: "Johannes has made great progress with us and we're confident that he'll make the step up to professional football. He's another big talent from our academy at the FC Bayern Campus, of which we expect a lot in the future. Johannes has great reflexes and a big range - he's got it all."
Johannes Schenk: "It's a great honour to be able to sign a professional contract at FC Bayern. When I came here five years ago, that was a long way off. Now I want to gain a lot of experience and keep improving."
