Alaba hits the gas

David Alaba appeared at the Säbener Strasse facility on Monday sporting a new haircut, a classic short back and sides. The FC Bayern left-back declined to take the official day off and completed a punishing extra workout instead under the supervision of fitness coach Thomas Wilhelmi. Alaba ruptured a ligament in his left knee wile on friendly duty for Austria in late March. The 22-year-old was able to resume jogging and running a week and a half ago.
