National goalkeeper Kevin Trapp will remain loyal to Eintracht Frankfurt in the long term. As the Hessians announced on Friday, the 32-year-old has extended his contract, which originally ran until 2024, until summer 2026. The new contract also includes an option to extend it by a further year. Trapp turned down an offer from Manchester United last summer.
“Everyone knows how much this club means to me and that I feel at home in Frankfurt. I am happy that I will continue to be part of the Eintracht family,” said the Saarlander: “The club’s ambitions are one hundred percent the same with mine and I’m dying to keep giving my all for Eintracht Frankfurt.” He “still has a lot to do” with Eintracht.
Trapp is an “absolute identification figure like no other for Eintracht Frankfurt,” enthused sports director Markus Krösche: “His outstanding goalkeeping, but also his personality make him an indispensable part of our team and our club.” The SBU “now has the strongest German goalkeeper between our posts in the long term. That makes us proud”.
As part of the negotiations, the co-captain had already been shown a perspective for the time after his active career. Trapp moved from 1. FC Kaiserslautern to Main in the summer of 2012, after a three-year detour to Paris St. Germain he returned in 2018. In total, the six-time national player played 282 competitive games for Frankfurt and made a significant contribution to the triumph in the Europa League in the previous season.
