Austrian international defender David Alaba, former Bayern Munich player, confirmed that he is proud to defend the colors of Real Madrid, the runner-up of the Spanish Football League, and carried the No. 4 shirt for his legendary captain Sergio Ramos, who moved this summer to Paris Saint-Germain.
Ramos signed in early July a two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain after his contract with the Spanish club expired and the two parties failed to renew it. Alaba explained: He is not here to compare himself with others.
He said: “I want to be David Alaba, to give my strength and my qualities to the team and to play my game.” Alaba, who signed a contract with the Royal Club for five seasons immediately before the European Cup after the expiration of his contract with the Bavarian club, played a major role in Bayern’s golden contract: he won 28 titles with the Bavarian team, including ten titles in the German League and two titles in the Champions League (2013 and 2020 ).
The contract with Alaba is a great support to rebuild the royal club, which is now coached by Carlo Ancelotti, after the departure of French Zinedine Zidane after a second term, slightly less successful than the first, and a year without a title. The Austrian defender confirmed that he has an excellent relationship with Ancelotti, who coached him at Bayern Munich, and has a lot of enjoyment to work with him again.
He added that joining the great Real Madrid, the club with the most titles in the Champions League (13 titles), embodies an ascending path in his football career that began in the youth teams of Austria Vienna before moving to Bayern Munich at the age of sixteen. He said: “For me, this is a dream come true, it is the best club in the world.”
