FC Bayern extend Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s contract
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will be staying in Munich for another year. FC Bayern have extended the 33-year-old striker’s contract until 30 June 2024. With 15 goals in 24 games this season, the Cameroon international is currently the top scorer in Julian Nagelsmann’s squad alongside Jamal Musiala.
Board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic: “We’re very pleased that Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will be staying with us for another year. Choupo is an artist on the ball and has performed really well in recent years. He helped us in the first half of this season to fill the gap we had at centre-forward. He’s done really well and backed up his performances in games this year. We’re glad to have him and be able to work with him until summer 2024.”
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting: “I‘m super happy to be staying longer and continuing to have lots of fun with the club. I feel very much at home here. My family also feel at home in Munich. That’s a very important point for me. I’m obviously pleased I can help the team so much. I get on really well with the guys, we work hard on our goals. The competition is big, but when you want to be among the best, that’s part of it. It’s the only way you can win lots of titles. And we’ve still got big plans. The whole package is right at FC Bayern. There’s no reason to change anything.“
