Bayern Munich announced contract extensions for 18-year-old goalkeepers Manuel Kainz and Johannes Schenk.

Kainz’s contract will run through the 2021/2022 season, while Schenk has a deal through the 2023/2024 campaign. Per a release from FCBayern.com:

After Lukas Schneller, FC Bayern has tied down two more promising young goalkeepers for longer. Manuel Kainz has signed a new contract until June 2022 and Johannes Schenk until June 2024. Both share the goalkeeper position in the U19 of the record champion this season and play a role in the planning for the amateurs in the 2021/2022 season.

Kainz, who was born in Munich, joined the Bayern junior team in the summer of 2015 from SC Eintracht Freising. Schenk, who is a year younger, moved to Munich from 1. FC Nürnberg when the campus opened in 2017 and has already been part of the amateurs’ squad in the 3rd division for the past three games.

Campus director Jochen Sauer was happy to get deals done with both keepers.

“Jojo has been with us since 2017 and Manuel already since 2015. We are very pleased that we were able to convince them to continue on the same path and that they will continue their development with us at the campus,” said Sauer.

#FCBayern has tied two hopeful young goalkeepers to itself longer. Manuel #Kainz (03/03/2002) signed a new contract until June 2022 and Johannes #Schenk (13/01/2003) until June 2024.

What effect — if any — these signings have on the respective futures of Ron-Thorben Hoffmann and Christian Früchtl is unknown at this point.
