Mateta extends contract
French goal scorer extends until 2023
Jean-Philippe Mateta has extended his contract with 1. FSV Mainz 05 by a year, until 2023. The French U21 international, who is currently taking part in the European Championship in Italy, has been with the Zerofivers since last year. The 21-year-old featured in all 34 Bundesliga matches for Mainz this past season and was the team’s leading goal scorer with 14.
“This is a clear statement in regards to his future with Mainz 05. Jean-Philippe Mateta showed his potential and quickly developed into a high-profile Bundesliga player, all within his first season. At the same time, he still has room to grow, which is something that we want to foster and use to our advantage. JP feels very at home both here at Mainz and in the city itself, that’s something you can clearly see in his demeanour. We’re excited that he sees himself taking his next steps with Mainz 05,” said sporting director Rouven Schröder.
