World record holder Lionel Messi 39, David Alaba 36 – Austria’s Real superstar is now chasing one of the greatest of all time after the Champions League triumph against Dortmund.

Black training pants and a white Real shirt with his number 4 on the back—this is how David Alaba sat on the Madrid bench during the Champions League triumph in London.

It was in this outfit that he accepted the winner’s medal from UEFA President Alexander Ceferin, and later, while celebrating with the fans, he wore a specially created shirt with shirt number 15 (for Real’s 15th title in Europe’s premier league) and the words “Champions”.

Title number 36

It was title number 36 for the 31-year-old Austrian, who had played in three matches in the group stage before suffering a cruciate ligament injury. An incredible number, with which he is now chasing one of the greatest of all time, world record holder Lionel Messi, who has a total of 39 titles.

And has to “tremble” before Alaba: Trophy number 37 is already waiting for the Austrian; in the UEFA Super Cup, Champions League winners Real Madrid are clear favorites against Atalanta Bergamo, the Europa League winners, in Warsaw on August 14. Alaba should also be ready to return to action after his injury.

Yesterday’s program in Madrid included a big celebration for winning the Champions League and the Spanish championship, traditionally taking an open-top bus through the entire city, with the Cibeles Fountain as the endpoint. A Real scarf is traditionally draped around the statue of the Greek goddess Cybele.

Then there was the performance in front of tens of thousands of fans in the Bernabeu stadium, where the exuberant Real party came to an end.

Non-playing captain with Ralf Rangnick

For Alaba, after the celebrations, it’s now “Berlin, Berlin, we’re going to Berlin!” He will travel with the ÖFB team to the EUROs, where he will act as a non-playing captain in Ralf Rangnick’s coaching staff.

And after the EURO, the hunt for Messi will continue. Perhaps David will be immortal in a year’s time as the greatest title collector of all time!
