VfL Wolfsburg have extended the contract of Maximilian Arnold until 2022.
The 23-year-old has featured in 176 competitive games for Wolfsburg 2011, of which sporting director Olaf Rebbe was full of praise.
“The premature and long-term contract extension with Maximilian Arnold documents the mutual trust and ambition from all sides. VfL is Maximilian‘s vocational-education club. He has experienced highs here, such as the Bundesliga runner-up season and the DFB-Cup win, but also lows, like last season’s relegation battle.
“At just 23 years old, he has already made over 170 competitive appearances for VfL – that’s quite exceptional. Maximilian Arnold now wants to take the next step in his development with VfL Wolfsburg, which we are very happy about,” said Rebbe.
Arnold added: “I am very happy to have signed an early contract extension with VfL. I matured into a Bundesliga player in Wolfsburg and I want to make the next steps in my development here. The fact that the club has such fate in me is wonderful confirmation of their massive belief in me. That trust is something I wish to pay back to the club.”
