Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic from triple winner Bayern Munich put David Alaba in his place in the dispute over his contract extension and showed the Austrian his place in the “money list”.

“At Bayern there is a sporting and financial limit: Robert Lewandowski and Manuel Neuer,” Salihamidzic said kicker: “I don’t think David himself believes he is above these two colleagues.” The sports director made it clear that the record champions will also act economically conservative in the case of Alabas during the corona crisis.
“We won’t do crazy things like he might know from other clubs,” said the 43-year-old: “And certainly not at a time when sales and profits are collapsing, in football and everywhere else in business.”
Allegedly, the 28-year-old Alaba, whose contract runs until 2021, wants to earn 25 million euros per year in the event of an extension. That has annoyed Uli Hoeneß in particular recently. The honorary president described Alaba’s advisor Pini Zahavi as a “greedy piranha”.
