After a phenomenal five seasons with Eintracht Frankfurt, Kevin Trapp has confirmed that he has no intention of leaving the club. The 33-year-old had extended his contract with Die Adler earlier in the year which will see him remain at the Deutsche Bank Park until the summer of 2026.
“Eintracht Frankfurt is now a big club in Germany that can and wants to be successful. In the past six years the club has been in four finals and won two important titles. My personal goal was to be able to play at a high level in Germany – and that works here,” Trapp told Kicker.
Trapp had previously spent time in Ligue 1 with PSG, racking up 91 appearances for the Parisians during a three-year spell that heralded a total of 11 trophies. However, despite various lucrative offers to move abroad once again, such as a serious approach from Manchester United, Trapp insists he is happy at Frankfurt.
“I’ve had my experience abroad, so it’s not like I felt I had to do it again. When such a big club comes knocking, you start to ponder. But for me it’s about constantly facing a challenge and not staying in the comfort zone. I’m very happy here and I have the feeling that we’re on a very good path that’s not over yet,” remarked the 33-year-old.
The past few years have seen Die Adler begin to establish themselves as a future powerhouse within the German game. Consistent forays into Europe has even seen the Eagles make their mark on the continental stage with an impressive Europa League triumph two years ago.
With one of Europe’s top goalkeepers in between the sticks for the foreseeable future, more success could certainly be on the way for Die Adler.
