Şehitler heads to the FC Bayern Campus as an U17 European champion and has already impressed in training with FC Bayern Women. “The way she trains and plays impressed us a lot,” explained head coach Alexander Straus. “Young talents at FC Bayern get the opportunity to work together with experienced and established players. They can learn a lot from that.”

As of this summer, the Ravensburg native will be aiming to establish herself in the first team in Munich. “First of all I want to settle in well and then achieve as much as possible both personally and with the team. I’ve already had experience at youth level which I want to bring in and build on,” she added.
