Alaba said. “
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.

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.”
Alaba used Bayern Munich’s loss to Borussia Mönchengladbach as an example that the problems his team is facing are fixable.
