Alaba Opens Up On Real Madrid Move

New Real Madrid signing, David Alaba has opened up on his move to the club at his unveiling at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Alaba joined Real Madrid on a free transfer from Bayern Munich after he failed to renew his contract with the Bundesliga Champions.

“I’m honoured to wear the number four, it’s a source of great pride and motivation for me and I want to do it justice – but I’m not here to compare myself to other players or replace them: I’m here to be David Alaba.”

The 29-year-old also revealed that he is not at Real Madrid to replace Sergio Ramos after he was handed the number 4 jersey previously worn by the former Captain.

Sergio Ramos left Real Madrid after 16 years to join PSG last month.

“We all know Ramos was here for a long time and wore this number, becoming the leader of this team,” he told a news conference.

“But the truth is that yesterday I spoke to the club and they told me that right now it’s the only available squad number, and I didn’t want to start asking other players if they wanted to swap.

Alaba won 10 Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich, two Champions League titles and six German Cup trophies.
