"We are happy Anna and Merle have decided to stay at Bayer 04," said Linda Peckhaus, director of the Women's section.
Anna Klink (22) and Merle Barth, who celebrated her 23rd birthday on Friday, progressed through the youth teams at Bayer 04 and have been at the club since 2009. Both are regulars in the Bundesliga team with Klink in goal and Barth as a versatile player in defence, midfield and attack. On Sunday, the duo will be in the Leverkusen side in Sinsheim looking to pick up points against TSG Hoffenheim in the battle to stay in the top division of the Allianz Women's Bundesliga.

These questions and many more were the focus of the latest Bayer 04 event as part of the neighbourhood games days. With a visit to GGS Kerschensteinerschule, Bayer 04 professionals Gustavo Puerta and Verena Wieder kicked off the third campaign match day of this Bundesliga season against VfL Bochum, which will be centred around the Küppersteg district. The duo were supported by nutritionist Lena Kadlec, who organised a workshop with the pupils.Show more
