Soccer-Lewandowski extends Bayern deal by two years to 2023

BERLIN, Aug 29 (Reuters) - Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski signed a two-year contract extension on Thursday that will keep him at the German champions until 2023.

The Poland forward, who has netted all five of Bayern’s league goals this season, has scored 197 goals in 246 matches in all competitions since joining from Borussia Dortmund in 2014. He is third on the club’s list of all-time scorers behind Gerd Mueller and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

“Bayern has become my sporting home,” the 31-year-old said in a club statement.

“I am convinced that we can achieve a lot in the coming years. Bayern are one of the three biggest clubs in the world and have a superb squad. I am proud to be a part of this club.”

Bayern, who have won the last seven league titles, are on four points from two games in the Bundesliga this season. (Reporting by Karolos Grohmann, editing by Pritha Sarkar)
