Roman Burki News: Roman Burki contract extension
Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki has signed a contract extension until 2021, the Bundesliga league leaders announced on Friday.
Switzerland international Burki, 26, has made 68 Bundesliga appearances for BVB since his move from Freiburg in 2015.
“Roman fits in excellently at Borussia Dortmund, both on a sporting level and as a person,” sporting director Michael Zorc said.
Burki played in Thomas Tuchel’s DFB Pokal winning side in May, but has been criticised for his performances in this season’s Champions League. In midweek, he made a glaring error in the 1-1 draw with Apoel Nicosia.
Burki’s contract extension follows on the back of reports linking Cologne keeper Timo Horn and Paris Saint-Germain’s Kevin Trapp with a Dortmund move. Moreover, Zorc has backed the under-pressure Burki to come through his current troubles.
“We like his playing style and see a great potential to develop in him. We are sure that he will soon be able to consistently produce what he is capable of,” he said.

Swiss goalkeeper Roman Bürki has committed to helping children by becoming an ambassador for Terre des hommes (Tdh), Switzerland’s largest child aid organisation. The footballer will visit Romania in May to support projects helping to integrate young people through sport.
The Swiss footballer Roman Bürki was in Zürich yesterday to sign a contract with Tdh: from spring onwards, he will be one of Tdh’s ambassadors. The 27-year-old believes that simple measures can help change children’s lives for the better.
“This is the perfect role for me. I love working with children. I’ve always enjoyed playing with them. Putting a smile on their face makes me happy. I want to give them my support so they can grow up in a protected environment,” said Bürki, who is currently the goalkeeper for the Borussia Dortmund club.
Sport teaches children a range of skills, helping them to thrive. Not only does sport give children an opportunity to play games, have fun and be physically active, it helps them learn how to cooperate, respect rules and communicate. Sport is central to the psychosocial support activities that Tdh runs for children.
“Sport helps build relationships. Just like other sports, football has its own language. You immediately understand, whether or not you’re part of the team. For me, this is an important part of childhood – being able to build relationships no matter where you come from,” explained Bürki.
In May, he will travel to Romania to find out about Tdh’s work with Roma and migrant children. In difficult social contexts, football is an excellent way of encouraging social integration and reconstruction.
“I’m really looking forward to this trip. I hope I can help change things,” he said.
