David Alaba (29) was introduced to Real Madrid last Wednesday. At that time, the ex-Bayern star was happy: “I’m very grateful and proud to be here today, and I’m just waiting to put on my jersey and take on the fight for the title.”
Now the Spanish sports newspaper “Marca¶” reports that the Austrian could play a particularly important role in the title race: Without Sergio Ramos, who has migrated to PSG, or long-time specialist Cristiano Ronaldo on the field, Alaba could be the player who will take the free kicks next season the royal shoots.
The payment: Ronaldo had 33 goals in 444 free kicks, Gareth Bale scored four out of 70 and Ramos scored two goals out of 27 attempts. When Ramos was last absent from Real, Karim Benzema took over the standards.
Now this privilege could fall to Alaba in the coming season. Alaba already impressed the coaching staff with its direct free kicks in the first training sessions in Valdebebas, reports the “Marca”.

background: After Ronaldo’s departure to Juve, the Real shooters sank only four free kicks in 66 attempts. Isco counted the “Marca” in one of eight attempts, Dani Ceballos (1 of 1), Ramos (1 of 11) and Toni Kroos (1 of 4).
And Alaba? The newspaper was busy there too: In 124 attempts, he converted ten free kicks directly. Great quota! The eleventh goal would then be a goal for Real Madrid.
