The brand-new Real Madrid defender meets the Austrian National Team preparing for the match he will have with Italy for Euro 2021 and, despite this, David Alaba took a few moments at the press conference, prior to the round of 16 clash in the end, to tell how was his signing in the White House after his departure from Bayern Munich.
His first option was the white team, as indicated by the former Bavarian defender who will be led by Carlo Ancelotti and is probably a starter within the new merengue scheme. “Obviously I had several possibilities, but Real Madrid was in the first place of my priorities”, said the Austrian central.
It was more than one team that showed interest in Alaba, even within the English league, according to the same footballer: “It serves as a motivation for any player that a club from the Premier or another strong championship calls you because it gives you more value.”
David Alaba has his destiny consummated for the next five seasons within the ‘White House’ and, after getting his pass to the round of 16 with Austria, all his focus is on the Eurocup, where he will play his next game against Italy. “A dream come true to play at Wembley against Italy in the round of 16 of a European Championship”, considered the white central.
It goes step by step. For Alaba the duel of Austria vs. Italy is to death: “It would be amazing to reach the quarter-finals in Munich. That would be amazing for all of us, another dream come true. But we still don’t think about that. We focus on the match against Italy “.
