The contract between Midfielder Kevin Kampl and RB Leipzig was due to end after next season, but until 2023 he is now connected to the club. Kevin Kampl committed his future to RB Leipzig by signing a contract extension that runs through 2023.
In 2017, Slovenia International joined Bayer Leverkusen from rivals in the Bundesliga and are approaching a century of appearances for Leipzig, although a foot injury has hindered his campaign for 2019–20.
Midfielder Kampl, 29, was limited to 12 outings in all competitions but is happy to stay at the club for another two years, as his previous contract was due to expire after next season.
Kampl said: “I am happy about the extension of my contract. My family and I feel right at home here, and Leipzig has become our second home. Despite my injury, the club made it clear they ‘d like to keep me for years to come, and I think I’ve paid back their support since I came back. I am excited about the future, we want to achieve a lot, and I want to play my part as an experienced man in a talented young team.”
Markus Krosche, the sporting director of Leipzig, praised Kampl’s leadership skills as they continue to prepare for the future, albeit one without Timo Werner, a Chelsea-bound forward.
Krosche told the club ‘s website: “Kevin is one of the real leaders on and off the pitch in our team. Since returning from his long-term injury, he has demonstrated how important he is to us and how he embodies the way we want to play football. We ‘re happy that he extended his contract early for another two years, and we’ve managed to secure the future of enough main players here.”
