The Austrian player, who will be out of contract by the end of the season, received criticism following their recent defeat to Monchengladbach.
Bayern Munich defender, David Alba, believes the nearing of his contract’s end at Allianz Arena has nothing to do with his current performance. Following their 3-2 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach, many criticized the Austrian player as they blamed the speculations over his future to be the reason for his slipping performance.
When asked about his recent struggles in the defense-line due to his future-links, the 28-year-old responded: “No, absolutely not.”
“Personally, I don’t think things are going so badly for me this season and I haven’t changed my style of play compared to last year.”
“I’ve said it many times: For me, the only thing that counts is another successful season with Bayern. We are still leading the table and I am sure that we will win the next games and, in the end, we will be top.”
Bayern seem to have little to worry about as they continue to lead the Bundesliga table ahead of their other opponents. And since they have chosen to let go of Alaba, many clubs have come forward to sign the player with Real Madrid being the favorite, but according to some reports, his wage demands remain to block the negotiations over his future.
