FC Schalke 04 have extended the expiring contract of goalkeeper Michael Langer by one year, taking the Austrian into his fifth season with the Royal Blues.
“We’re happy to keep Michael Langer with us for one more year. Everyone knows how important he was and is for the team. And that doesn’t just explicitly mean his role inside the changing room. He has also always been there when we have needed him on the pitch,” said Peter Knäbel, board member for sport and communication.
The 36-year-old made his competitive debut for Schalke this season, featuring against Leverkusen, Dortmund and Stuttgart.
