Feiersinger and Wenninger extend contracts

Austrian internationals Laura Feiersinger and Carina Wenninger have extended their contracts with FC Bayern Munich through June 30, 2017.

“I’m looking forward to continuing down the path at FC Bayern Munich together with Carina and Laura,” said coach Thomas Wörle. “Carina’s fought back hard following her knee injury, and Laura’s on the way back to her top form. Both of them belong to the core of our team and have put on great performances for our club over the last few years.”

Wenninger, the 24-year-old defender, has been playing in Munich since 2007 and has made 97 appearances for FC Bayern. “The team’s perspective is great. I’m highly motivated to be successful with this team in the future,” explained Wenninger.

Laura Feiersinger moved to FC Bayern in 2011, and has made 57 appearances for the team. “I’m happy to have extended my contract for two years here in Munich,” said the 22-year-old midfielder. “I’ve been in Munich for four years now and feel at home both on and off the pitch. I see great potential in our team and look forward to the next, hopefully successful, two years in Munich.”
