Kristin Demann signs contract extension

Bayern Munich have announced that Kristin Demann has signed a two year extension to her current contract. Her new deal now runs through the end of the 2022/23 season. The 27 year old defender has emerged as a key part of of Jens Scheuer’s backline and has started two of the three league matches so far this season.

“I am very happy about the early contract extension. I feel very comfortable in the team and in Munich,” Demann said. “At the moment there is an exciting process going on with us and I want to be part of this development, which will hopefully be crowned with success in the end.”

Giulia Gwinn updates on knee injury

After tearing her ACL during Germany’s match against Ireland, Giulia Gwinn disappeared from social media for a bit as she dealt with the aftermath of the injury. She has reemerged, however, with an update on her injury and where things stand.

Gwinn went to Dr. Christian Fink who was the same doctor who operated on the knees of three players on the Bayern men’s team — Niklas Sule, Leroy Sane, and Lucas Hernandez.

Despite the set back, Gwinn is ready to move forward: “From now on it’s important to look ahead and do everything possible to be back on the field as quickly as possible.”
