Bayern record player Wenninger retires after the season free press

by time news

Bayern Munich’s record player Carina Wenninger will end her football career after this season. The 32-year-old central defender, who currently plays for the Italian club AS Roma, announced this in Vienna at a press conference of the Austrian association (ÖFB).

The ÖFB captain had played 303 competitive games for Bayern in 15 years (213 wins) before moving to Rome on loan at her own request last summer. At the beginning of March, FCB announced that Wenninger would not return to Munich after this season – contrary to what was originally planned.

“You should stop when it’s most beautiful. Now I can decide the time myself because I’m still in top shape,” said Wenninger in her farewell PK. “After 16 years abroad, I also like to come back to Austria and I also have a great job opportunity at the ÖFB.” Wenninger played 127 international matches for her home country, only Sarah Puntigam from 1. FC Köln played more often for the ÖFB selection.

Wenninger moved from LUV Graz to Munich in 2007 as a 16-year-old, where she won the German championship three times and the DFB Cup once with Bayern. In Italy, she is now well on the way to winning another national title with Rome. The lead in the championship round over Juventus Turin is eight points. (dpa)
