“David has developed magnificently as a player since he came to FC Bayern as a 16-year-old. Nowadays he rates as one of the best and most successful full-backs in Europe. We are delighted we can continue to count on him and his efforts for the club,“ commented FC Bayern München AG chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

“I’ve been here at FC Bayern since 2008. It became my club a long time ago,“ stated treble winner David Alaba. “I’m delighted everything is settled now and I have the opportunity to play here for this club at least until 2018.“
