The signing of the new Real Madrid David Alaba said on Wednesday that it would be an “honor” to wear the Sergio Ramos 4 shirt at the Spanish club.
Alaba was officially represented by Madrid after reaching an agreement with the club in May.
“(Ramos is) has been here for a decade and has become a leader wearing this number,” Alaba said. “This is a great motivation for me and I want to present and honor him. I have said this several times. But I want to repeat that I am not here to compare myself with others. I want to show my strengths and continue to be David Alaba. “
Ramos said goodbye to Madrid last month after spending 16 years at the club. He said he wanted to stay, but the club preferred not to renew his contract. He will play with Paris Saint-Germain.
Alaba joined Madrid from Bayern Munich, where he played 431 games in 13 years.
