FC Bayern confirms signing of Janina Leitzig who will move to Bavaria in the summer from TSG Hoffenheim.
The 21-year-old goalkeeper celebrated the championship of the 2. Frauen Bundesliga South twice in 2016 and 2017 as a member of 2nd Hoffenheim team. After that she was promoted to the first team and has played on 29 competitive matches so far.
Leitzig, who signed a three-year contract with FC Bayern is “ready for a new challenge at FC Bayern.” “FC Bayern is one of the top teams in Germany and the world and plays for titles. I am really looking forward to that. In recent years, I have been able to mature as a goalkeeper in Hoffenheim, develop further and gain match practice in the Bundesliga. Here at FC Bayern, everything has convinced me a lot and I am sure that now is the right moment to take the next step,” Leitzig added.
