David Alaba: Staying at Bayern Munich

The 21-year-old has established himself as Bayern's first-choice left-back and one of the league's rising stars.

The Austria international, whose previous deal was due to run out in 2015, said on the club website: "I am very, very happy."

Sporting director Matthias Sammer added: "At 21 you have not yet matured. The signal from David, to carry on here with us, is very important."

Alaba is already a two-time Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal winner as well as a Champions League winner.

Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is impressed with his progress.

"He developed wonderfully on the pitch," he said. "The coach (Pep Guardiola) is very happy, we are very happy. David has made a major contribution to ensuring that we have had many successes this year."

Alaba, who has 30 caps for Austria, made his Bayern debut aged 17 in February 2010.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
