Isabel Kerschowski has signed a contract extension with VfL Wolfsburg until June 30, 2018. This is another contract announcement, the ninth to be exact, from the Frauen-Bundesliga side this week, with them announcing a slew of them during the international break.
After rising through the youth ranks to the first team for 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam, before two seasons at Bayer Leverkusen, Kerschowski joined the Wolves in 2014 as additional squad depth to what, at the time, was a stacked midfield.
The German midfielder has featured more and more as the season has progressed and has performed at a high standard each time she has stepped on the pitch. Her performances have also caught the eye of Silvia Neid, Germany's head coach, who selected Kerschowski for her 2016 SheBelieves Cup squad this past month after a long absence from the national team.
Player and manager delighted
The midfielder seemed delighted to be offered the contract extension which showed her the club's "absolute confidence" in her. She also stated that she was happy to keep playing for Wolfsburg and hopes to help the team with their "chase for the title".
Ralf Kellerman, Wolfsburg's head coach and sporting director, spoke about Kerschowski's contract extension on the club's official website. He praised Kerschowski's "fantastic effort" for the side, which earned her a national team call-up after a long absence, before adding that he was happy that she wanted to continue to play for the club.
The 28-year-old has featured 27 times, mostly as a substitute, for Wolfsburg so far in her career and has scored four goals. She is known for her hard-work and good passing ability from the wing, which is what Wolfsburg will be hoping she continues to provide over the next two years for them.
