Peggy Kuznik extends

1. FC Köln have extended Peggy Kuznik’s contract by a further year. The 34-year-old defender has been with FC since 2017.

Peggy Kuznik has extended her deal with FC Frauen until 30th June 2022. The 34-year-old has enjoyed an impressive career to date. She won the Champions League with 1. FFC Frankfurt in 2015, was UEFA Women’s Cup winner in 2005 with 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam and was twice Bundesliga champion. Kuznik has also won the DFB-Pokal four times. Since July 2017, she has been with FC Frauen.

In the Bundesliga, Kuznik has made 267 Bundesliga appearances and scored 26 goals. In the 2. Bundesliga, she has played 37 times and found the back of the net on 11 occasions. She has also 24 European appearances under her belt. In the current season, Kuznik has led FC back to the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga as captain.

Head coach, Sascha Glass said: “Peggy has helped us a lot with her experience and her impressive performances to earn promotion. She brings calmness and stability into our game, no matter where she plays. She also shows that she can score goals, despite being a defender. Peggy has a huge amount of passion for FC and is a role model for our young players, also when it comes to coping with pressure. We are really pleased, that she has extended her contract for a further year.”

Peggy Kuznik said: “I will be 35 this year and, therefore, the coming season could be the final campaign of my career. It is spurring me on, that I can test myself against the best again. We are back in the Bundesliga as champions and want to make something happen, that has never been achieved by FC Frauen. We want to stay up. I can’t imagine anything better than ending my career by reaching that goal – at a club, that has a place in my heart.”
