FC Bayern | The big mistake with David Alaba

While Bayern Munich is regularly weakening defensively, David Alaba enjoys an excellent reputation at Real Madrid. The Austrian convinces with the royal in his first months all the line. Has the German record champion at Alaba won?

The 2: 4 at VfL Bochum was a humiliation for FC Bayern Munich. Especially defensive, the record champion was partly made of the climber on the nose ring over the lawn. “This does not happen for the first time. In Gladbach that happened already,” head coach Julian Nagelsmann, after the game and added: “We have to take care of all the virtues. We have to wonder if that’s the mentality of Bayern is. “

Of course, the look at such a development is aimed primarily in the direction of coach bank. After the extremely successful flick era, there have been several defensive dropouts under Nagelsmann. But even in the squad there was a change: with David Alaba left a clusure of the club. The huge footsteps, which the Austrian left, are currently simply too big for the DAYOT UPAMECANO obliged as a supposed crown prince.

Alaba is missing the FC Bayern

“What is noticeable is that they do not have stability specifically in the internal defense,” the former CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge at “Sky 90” put his finger into the defensive wound: “Maybe the organizer is missing. David Alaba was there Important man, even in the cabin. This finish should not have to take place better. “

For a long time, the Bundesliga Primus fought for the 29-year-old, who once again invented himself in Munich as an outstanding center-back. Ultimately, it moved to him in the summer of 2021 to Real Madrid – there he struck immediately.

No matter of course: Alaba had to replace a clusure in the Spanish capital.

After 16 years and several titles, Sergio Ramos, Defensebiest, Torjäger and Emotional Leader left in Personal Union, the Madrilenen and moved to Paris Saint-Germain. Since there was also an abundance of Ramos’ longtime and congenial part man Raphaël Varane in the direction of Manchester United, not a few doubted that Alaba could close the gap. A little later, however, it stood: he can! The fact that the Viennese looked after still in Munich, actually he can actually be lifted in the central midfield best, the situation almost ads absurdum.

Because the 29-year-old comes under his old known Carlo Ancelotti also with real in the internal defense – and stands out of the rodemble: “From the qualities he is a blast. He is versatile, has a good shot and leadership skills. With Quality was guaranteed by its commitment, “softened Fabio Cannavaro opposing the” Marca “for example.

Nebannmann éder Militao also benefits from Alaba and feels clear next to the new defense chief. The Brazilian has been identifying much more stable services since Alaba’s arrival. The fact that the leaders from Madrid with 20 goals after 24 games has the second best defensive la ligas, is proof enough.

Real, however, not only profits defensive of Alaba, even in the offensive, the national player always relies on accents. His player opening is an essential part of the game of Ancelotti-eleven. The fact that Alaba achieved his debutor in Clásico against the arch rivals FC Barcelona also underpin the leader qualities of the left foot.

Alaba: “Do not want to go the easy way”

But not only therefore he conquered the hearts of the real fans in the record pace. The 29-year-old is to be noted how much fun he does to play for the royal. He is literally burning for his new club. After all, it was also a decision for which he took time.

“After 13 years in the same club, I wondered how it should go on,” he explained to the “GQ Espana”. He left his Comfort Zone Munich short and joined Real Madrid, which aimed for a break to face “a new challenge” “and do not go the simple way”.

However, the truth also belongs that the decision to tackle a “new challenge” was fueled by a very well-doped contract. In addition to a very handsome handygal, Alaba should earn almost 20 million euros a year. A sum that could not or did not want to throw in Munich in the ring.

Did the FC Bayern won?

Basically, a basic misjudgment was certainly a fundamental misjudgment: in the course of the tough poker around the central defender, Bavaria’s Honorary President Uli Hoeneß, media-effective and in the best “Mia San Mia” -pathos, “The Last Million” is not “so important”, a change is ” Financially perhaps a progress, but in all other areas a rejection “. So far, however, one can speak more of a royal success story. The mentality that Nagelsmann missed after the Bochum-Blamage is lived in Madrid game for play since the summer. For Real Madrid Alaba is exactly the hoped for top transfer. On the Säben Straße, Alaba’s qualities are painfully missing. Damian Ozako
