Bayern Munich Defender David Alaba Is Pretty Good at Freestyle Tricks

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterDecember 5, 2013

David Alaba is one of Europe's most impressive young defenders, and judging by this Bayern Munich video, he has the skills of a forward as well.

Alaba was filmed messing around and trying a couple of freestyle tricks—and he nailed them all. 

As per usual, we'll leave it up to you to debate whether any of them were faked. Either way, after showing he can defend like a champ at the weekend, he's also clearly got ball skills to brag about.
