Bayern Munich Frauen have today announced the signing of German international Marina Hegering from SGS Essen on a contract until 2022. Across her career, Hegering has made a total of 11 appearances for the German national team, as well as 171 in the Bundesliga.
FC Bayern will be her fourth club in her career, having played for Essen, Bayer Leverkusen and MSV Duisburg in the past. Whilst at Duisburg, she won the DFB Pokal in 2009 and 2010, as well as the UEFA Women’s Cup in 2009.
The defender received a two-year contract in Munich until 2022, as the club announced today. The 30-year-old, who had previously played eleven games for the DFB selection, wants to become German champions with Bayern.
“The potential to develop further here – as an athlete and as a person – is very large,” said Hegering. Bayern coach Jens Scheuer praised his new player as a “personality in the Bundesliga” and relies on Hegering’s experience, which has played a total of 141 games in the Bundesliga.
