Bayern campus director Jochen Sauer offered a few happy words following the contract extensions, stating that: “The majority of Jakob and Angelo’s footballing development have been here at Munich. [However] both have not hit their potential development ceiling yet. I am very happy that both will stay with us for the foreseeable future and I am excited to see how they develop.”
Jakob Mayer’s contract was running out in 2023, so this contract renewal will provide some real relief for the player. Having struggled with injuries a lot in past seasons, Mayer will relish the chance for more stability instead of being cast out while his stock is at its’ lowest, though this was hardly a charity act. Bayern will be happy to retain a talented keeper such as Mayer.
Brückner’s contract ran until 2024, but securing the versatile, two-footed full-back can only be a boon for the club.
