FC Bayern have signed U.S. U-23 international Claire Falknor (22). The defensive player joins the Bayern women from the University of Florida through June 2017.
The Ohio native has been acquainted with this FC Bayern team after their encounter last January during the Bayern women’s winter training camp, where Falknor played with the Gators, and had been under watch since. Falknor and the Gators finished the season in fifth place in the NSCAA ranking.
“Claire is a young and very talented defensive player who consciously chose a challenge in a foreign country,” said coach Thomas Wörle. “She’s very adaptable in the defense and has both athletic as well as football-specific strong points. I’m looking forward to an exceptionally determined footballer.”
Claire Falknor: "I am excited and grateful to have the opportunity to play for one of the most prestigious clubs in Europe. I am looking forward to challenging myself outside of my comfort zone and growing as a person and a player."
