Georgia Stanway: England Women midfielder extends Bayern Munich contract until 2026
England midfielder Georgia Stanway has extended her contract with Bayern Munich until 2026.
The 24-year-old made the switch to Germany in May last year after leaving Manchester City.
Stanway, who helped Bayern to Frauen-Bundesliga glory last season, scored ten goals in 37 games in all competitions for the Bavarians.
She told the club’s official website: “It feels like home here for me, which is very important to me. This here is the best place for me and I see my future here. The chance to renew at Bayern, and the fact that I also want club is a great honor.
“As a footballer and a professional athlete you are here to assert yourself, and we as a team are here to win. I think that is a given. I am very driven and will do everything I can to help the team, both at right on and off the field.”
Stanway is one of Bayern’s three captains this season, alongside Glodis Perla Viggosdottir and Sarah Zadrazi.
She added: “My favorite moment from last season was definitely winning the title.
“The week before the last league match was definitely the longest week ever. And to finally play against Potsdam and score a goal in the first minute, that was a great feeling.
“It was something special to lift the trophy at the end. Once you get the taste of it, you definitely want more.”
Stanway has also won silverware at international level, with England lifting the Euros last year.
She was also part of the Lionesses squad that finished second to Spain at this summer’s World Cup.
Bayern head coach Alexander Straus added: “Georgia is still young and will become even more important for our team than she already is.
“She has grown into a leadership position within our team over the past year. I think everyone could see how important she was to us.
“We believe in Georgia, and I’m glad Georgia also believes in our team and our mission.”
