MUNICH (AP) - Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has extended his contract with the club through 2019.

The club says on its website that Rummenigge, whose current deal was to expire at the end of this year, agreed to the contract extension with its board members.

The 60-year-old Rummenigge thanks club president Karl Hopfner “for the trust and the serious and constructive work together.”

Hopfner says “it’s a good day for Bayern Munich.”

Former West Germany striker Rummenigge started his career in 1974 at Bayern, and moved to Inter Milan 10 years later. He scored 162 goals in 310 Bundesliga games for Bayern. He became vice-president of the club in 1991, and chairman in 2002.
