For David Alaba, the new football season begins with famous goals. The ÖFB captain aims to win as many titles as possible with Real Madrid, whose first test of patience is Saturday’s La Liga first-round game at Athletic Bilbao. “When you have to play against such a strong opponent and that too away from home, it is certainly not the easiest of tasks. Nevertheless, we drive there motivated and full of confidence. We know our strengths, Alaba told the APA.
Viennese is in his third season with the “Royals”. In the first season, the Champions League victory and the championship ended. The club was good enough for the World Championship and Cup titles in 2022/23, but they were at a disadvantage in the league compared to FC Barcelona. In the Champions League semi-finals, eventual winners Manchester City were knocked out. Alaba’s despair is now gone. “We’re looking forward.”
