David Alaba demands a spot in his preferred position

Relevo reports that David Alaba has informed Carlo Ancelotti that he desires to play center defense this year.

With Eder Militao as his defensive partner last season, the Austrian was a big success for Real Madrid.


The addition of Antonio Rudiger, though, tempts Ancelotti to put Alaba back in his natural position as a left-back and use Ferland Mendy as a backup.


Alaba and Rudiger are two very different types of defenders right now. Similar to Eder Militao, Rudiger is the more aggressive one, while Alaba maintains his composure and protects any gaps that may have been left. 


Alaba wants to keep playing the same position he did last season, which might provide Ancelotti some significant selection difficulties this year.


According to appearances, Real Madrid will bench a large defender this year.
