Finnish international goalkeeper Tinja-Riikka Korpela has extended her contract with FC Bayern through June 30, 2018. Korpela made the move to Munich in the summer of 2014 and has made 36 appearances for the FC Bayern women.
Tinja-Riikka Korpela: “I’m happy to be able to continue with this world class team that is FC Bayern. I feel we’re not ‘done’ yet. I really believe this team has the potential to win more titles both in Germany and in Europe. I also want to get better as a player and test my limits. This environment gives me all the tools for that, then it's just up to me to use the tools and be responsible for my own development. I really want to do everything for this team and I want to win together with these players, coaches and the wonderful staff we have here!”
Coach Thomas Wörle: “Tinni is a very professional and experienced goalkeeper who consistently delivers good performances. She has an important presence on the pitch and lends our game a sense of calmness and stability. I’m happy she’ll be playing for FC Bayern Munich for the next two years.”
