Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has extended his contract by an extra three years, committing himself to the club until 2019.

The Germany number one, who arrived at Bayern from Schalke in 2011, signed his new contract on Friday with the club's chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge announcing the deal at an emergency general meeting in the evening.

"I find it astonishing and fantastic," said Rummenigge, who praised Neuer for the timing of his decision, just days after a hugely disappointing defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League.
