Goal-getter staying with VfL Wolfsburg until 2023.
One of the leading strikers in women’s football over recent years has committed her long-term future to VfL Women. Ewa Pajor, whose contract was originally set to expire in 2022, has signed an early extension through to 30 June 2023. The 23-year-old joins captain Alexandra Popp, Zsanett Jakabfi, Felicitas Rauch, Joelle Wedemeyer and Pia-Sophie Wolter on the list of players who have extended their deals with the Green-and-Whites, while Pauline Bremer has already been confirmed as a new signing for next season.
Pajor has clocked up 100 appearances for VfL in the Women’s Bundesliga to date, scoring 65 goals. Since joining the She-Wolves in 2015, the Poland international – who has 61 caps for her country – has won three league titles and four DFB Cups, and she was also the top goalscorer in the league in the 2018/19 campaign with 24 goals.
As one of the very top clubs in women’s football, VfL always have big ambitions and I’m very much looking forward to being able to play my part in achieving those goals over the coming years!
“From young talent to world-class player”
“VfL Wolfsburg gave me the chance as a young player to develop as both a footballer and a person, and to take the next step,” said Pajor. “As one of the very top clubs in women’s football, VfL always have big ambitions and I’m very much looking forward to being able to play my part in achieving those goals over the coming years!”
“It’s quite impressive how Ewa has developed here from a young talent into a world-class player,” added Ralf Kellermann, VfL Women sporting director. “We’ve built her up gently and her great patience and equally great ambition have been crucial to that. I’m sure that even though she’s already achieved a high level, she’s yet to unlock her full potential.”
Head coach Stephan Lerch described Pajor as “a very important player, who always gets herself and her teammates into goalscoring situations thanks to her tremendous pace. She’s difficult to stop and gives 100 per cent in everything she does. I’m very happy to know she’ll be staying in our team and to be able to support her continued progress.”
