‘’We're happy with Robert. But we don't have to extend the contract now, we still have 2 years,” Hainer told BILD TV when asked about Lewandowski's situation.

‘’As I said, I can imagine Robert staying beyond 2023. We're in permanent talks with all our players, including Lewy. But now is still early'’.
