FC Bayern has extended the contract of defender Josip Stanisic until 2026. This was officially announced by the Munich team on Saturday.
"Josip Stanišić has established himself in our professional squad over the past two years, and that is also an honor for the youth academy, because Josip was trained by us on campus," explained sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic. "He's versatile, he performs well when he's needed. His reliability helps our coach and the team. I'm happy that we can continue to plan with him in the long term."
The 22-year-old came from SC Fürstenfeldbruck to the record champions in 2017 and has played 29 competitive games (one goal) for the pros so far. Stanisic is on duty for the Croatian national team at the World Cup.
