Borussia Dortmund have announced the contract extension of goalkeeper Roman Bürki until 2021 ahead of their match against Eintracht Frankfurt.
“I’m pleased with the trust the club has placed in me, especially during such a tough time [Bürki’s midjudgement against APOEL in the UEFA Champions League led to the Cypriots’ goal]. I’m thrilled and proud to be the goalkeeper of such a great team,” the Swiss shot-stopper added.

“Roman is the perfect fit for Borussia Dortmund on both a sporting and personal level,” said sporting director Michael Zorc. “We like his style of play, see great potential for development in him and assume he will soon show that on a regular basis.”
Bürki has so far made 68 Bundesliga appearances for the Black-Yellow since joining, including 14 in European competitions. The 26-year-old also won his first piece of silverware in Germany with the club, when Dortmund lifted the DFB Cup after victory over upcoming opponents Frankfurt in the Berlin final last season.
