Anna Blässe will retire in the summer and will not extend her contract with Wolfsburg, where she spent the last 15 years.

The 35-year-old is the oldest serving Wolfsburg player in the current squad. She joined the team already in 2007 from Hamburger SV. Previously, she also played for FF USV Jena. The German striker has won the German championship six times, the DFB Cup eight times and the UEFA Women’s Champions League twice. In total, Blässe played 348 matches for the club. To add to that, she also made 27 appearances for the German national team.

“After a very long time at VfL Wolfsburg, feeling like half of my life, I decided to leave the club in the summer and start something new. It is simply unbelievable what has happened in the past 15 years and the development of women’s football at VfL. I’m first looking forward to the remaining time with this team and very much hope that in the summer we can celebrate not only my farewell with our fans, but also one or two titles,” added Blässe.
