David Alaba hails former bayern muich team mate Robert Lewandowski at barcelona

Real Madrid star David Alaba has revealed his admiration for Barcelona star Robert Lewandowski.

The duo opted to leave Bayern Munich, with Alaba making a free transfer to Los Blancos in 2021, and Lewandowski completing a controversial move to Catalonia this summer.

As teammates in Bavaria, the pair won seven Bundesliga titles and a 2020 Champions League, but the prospect of a new challenge in Spain swayed them.

Alaba put aside his new rivalry at El Clasico in an interview with Real Total, covered by Marca, to hail the start of the Polish international’s life in La Liga.

“I’m not surprised about Lewy. I know him very well from my time in Munich,” he said.

“What he’s doing in Spain, I’ve experienced firsthand for years in Munich.

He is one of the best strikers in the world. He’s shown that many times and he’s showing that this season.”

Despite his positivity about Lewandowski, Alaba has maintained his connections with Real Madrid in terms of the 2022 Ballon d’Or race, with the Austrian taking down Karim Benzema to win.
