Joško Gvardiol stays! Defender signs contract extension through 2027
Contract with the centre-back has been extended early by one year | He has played for RB Leipzig since 2021 | Currently has 51 games and two goals for RBL
Joško stays! RB Leipzig and Joško Gvardiol have agreed a contract extension, previously expiring in 2026, to run through until 2027.
The defender signed for Leipzig in summer 2021 from Dinamo Zagreb. With 29 appearances in his first season, he quickly became an integral part of the starting XI. His quality in build-up play as well as tackling has meant he has also become a goal threat, with two goals and three assists to his name.
On 21st May, 2022 the Croatian became a DFB-Pokal winner with RB Leipzig, celebrating his biggest sporting success in his career so far. He has already played ten matches with the Croatian national team, scoring once.
“I am very happy to have signed an early contract extension through 2027, because there is a lot more that I want to achieve with RB Leipzig. I can sense the club’s desire to help further my development. We are back in the Champions League, we won the DFB-Pokal last year and want to play for trophies once again this season. I am very grateful to the club’s executives for including me in their long-term plans and want to continue their path with me on board.”
