Alaba joined Real Madrid in the last transfer period on a free transfer after the end of his contract with Bayern Munich.
Alaba said in his interview with the German newspaper Bild: “It was a very exciting and emotional day. I was happy to finally arrive at Real Madrid, and I wanted to show my readiness to face a new challenge.”
He continued, “I did not want to provoke anyone by kissing the Real Madrid logo, nor to belittle Bayern Munich and the fans, I spent 13 wonderful years here, it was a very positive emotional.”
He continued, “I managed to develop as a person and as a player, and the fans always supported me and I will never forget them. I will respect the club and love it always. That will not change anything.”
Alaba spoke about obtaining Ramos’ number in Real Madrid, saying: “The number 27 that I wore in Bayern Munich is not allowed in Spain.”
He continued, “The club wanted me to wear the number 4, which is a legend and a role model on and off the field, but I, Alaba, do not want to be compared to other players, I want to write my own history with Real Madrid, and the most important thing is to perform on the field regardless of the shirt number.”
“I had a very good relationship with Rummenigge and still is, when I decided to leave Bayern Munich and take on a new challenge, I told him that I was doing this to develop myself as an athlete, I wanted to do something new, which is to understand that and he wished me the best.”
“I had a wonderful farewell, we were all at the Allianz Arena after the last match, I am very grateful to Bayern Munich not only in my career but in my life.”
