“Bayern Munich is a big club where attractive football is played and where I can develop further. That convinced me,” said Baijings, a Netherlands international. “I’m looking forward to competing for titles with FC Bayern and playing in the UEFA Women’s Champions League for the first time. Teammates from the national team who have already signed for FCB have told me nothing but positive things about Munich.”
