The crisis of Bavaria has caused a mess for weeks – leaving David Alaba quite cold. The fact that his club after eleven rounds in the German football league is only in fifth place should not be exaggerated, stressed the Munich pros on Tuesday in Vienna, where the ELF elections on the Nations League are preparing against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Northern Ireland.
"Inside the team, we do not care much about it," said Alaba. The Viennese know from many years of experience the mechanisms launched in German recordmasters in a phase of failure. "We know that small things often get big," said Alaba. "In Munich, you always try to make a fuss, which is not uncommon for us players."
For black painting, the 26-year-old has no understanding. "We do not let everything sound bad, we know what we can do." Although Alaba acknowledged that they are in a "somewhat uncomfortable situation, but the season is still long, it is still our goal to be at the end of the end." This attitude also transfers the criticized coach Niko Kovac. "He manages it very well and does not let himself be distracted by the stairs."
Comment on Bavaria's President Uli Hoeneß statement that there will be a change in the team next year, Alaba said: "I think we are already in the middle of change, we have many young players in our team." In this context, the left back called Serge Gnabry, Niklas Süle, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka or the currently injured Kingsley Coman.
Currently, the Nations League matches against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Northern Ireland are already in focus for Alaba. "It will not be an easy task, but I'm convinced that we have a team that will be successful on Thursday, we are very ambitious and try to work hard and be hungry as you can see in the training sessions and also on the mood we have "explained 65-fold International (13 goals).
Alaba warned, like his ÖFB colleagues, against the qualities of Bosnian goalkeeper Edin Dzeko, but also made it clear. "It's about what we do, we have to look at each other."
