Willi on board for the future! RB Leipzig have extended defender Willi Orban's contract for three years until 2025
The contract also includes an agreement that allows Willi to remain at the club following his returement as a player.
"Willi has played a major role in our successful path over the years and has once again proven how important he is to our team this season. He is a leader on the pitch with his good performances and is also an important part of our team in the dressing room. Willi stands for the values of RB Leipzig and is an important role model for our fans," said sporting director Markus Krösche.
The 28-year-old joined the Red Bulls from 1. FC Kaiserslautern in the summer of 2015 and made the leap from the Bundesliga 2 to the UEFA Champions League with RBL.
Willi is one of the absolute role models of the club, has been developing into a leader from the very beginning and also broke into the Hungary national team, making his debut on October 12, 2018 and going on to make 19 appearances so far.
The centre back has already made 189 appearances for RB Leipzig and scored an impressive 18 goals, making him the most prolific goal-scoring defender in the club's history.

Willi, you are a Red Bull through and through! It's great that we'll be riding together for the next few years!

 Willi Orban:

  • "I'm happy and pleased to continue my journey with RB Leipzig. Since joining in 2015, an incredible amount of things have happened across the whole club and we're far from being finished. We have a lot of plans and I want to help the club achieve its goals.
    I stopped by the stadium a few days ago and it was a great feeling to see what is being created at the Red Bull Arena due to the renovations. I just want to play as many more games here as possible. Leipzig has become my second home and if everything goes as planned, I'll have been at the club for ten years in 2025.
    That speaks for itself and for the appreciation that the club and above all, the fans have for me. Therefore, it was a quick and easy decision to agree that I will stay with RB Leipzig even after my time as a player."
