After securing their Bundesliga status, Bochum have today announced the contract extension of No. 1 goalkeeper Manuel Riemann by a further two years until 2025.
The 33-year-old was entering the final year of his contract but has established himself as one of Bochum’s integral players over the years. Riemann played 31 Bundesliga games last season, contributing towards his 218 games in all competitions for VFL.
“The Bundesliga was always a dream of mine,” says Manuel Riemann. “In the meantime, I am a Bundesliga goalkeeper and know that I can hold my own there with my performances. The desire to continue to be part of VfL and the Bundesliga is very strong. In this regard, I will continue to do everything I can to live up to the expectations placed on me.”
Sporting director Sebastian Schindzielorz added: “Manuel Riemann is an important part of the team. After his consistently good performances in the 2. Bundesliga, he has now proven that he is a top goalkeeper in the Bundesliga as well. Manu has immediately landed in the top 10 goalkeepers with his clean sheets.”
