Until 2020! Harder extends at vfl

It's fantastic news for women's soccer fans in Wolfsburg, and of course a signal to teammates as well as the competition. Perhaps the best female soccer player in the team continues to be committed to VfL – Pernille Harder has already extended her contract, which is already valid until 2019, to 2020. In January 2017, she had transferred free of charge from the Swedish top club Linkopings FC to the Mittellandkanal, had a big part in the double of championship and DFB Cup right in her first half-year. And her hunger for success does not seem to be satisfied for a long time yet..

"Wolfsburg is the best place for me to develop and win more titles. The club's demands match my personal ambitions perfectly," says Harder, underlining her great ambitions with the Wolfsburg women's team. She herself leads the way. 15 goals she scored for coach Stephan Lerch's team in 15 games across competitions. This season, she and the Wolfsburg team will continue their quest for the triple crown. The VfL leads the Bundesliga. And in the Champions League, the team has just as easy a task in the quarterfinals with Slavia Prague as it does in the Cup eighth-final replay at second-division team BV Cloppenburg.

Ralf Kellermann said about the contract extension with the most successful Bundesliga scorer: "Since Pernille joined us last year, she has immediately developed into an absolute top performer. The fact that she is extending is a great sign. Together with her, we want to remain among the international elite in the future."The sporting director of the VfL women's team also gave Johnson the accolade: "Pernille is one of the most complete offensive players currently available in women's soccer. She has a world-class format and, in addition to her individual class, plays extremely well for the team."

Kellermann recently highlighted the 25-year-old's class in an interview with this newspaper: "Pernille, for example, would probably have become a world player this year if we had won the Champions League."

After Lena Goebling, the Swiss Noelle Maritz and Ewa Pajor, she is incidentally already the fourth player who has extended within the past month and a half at VfL.
