[David Alaba admits being on Barcelona’s transfer radar is flattering but insists his focus remains on Bayern Munich] Of course, it’s an acknowledgement, it’s an honour for me. My focus is fully on Bayern here in America and on pre-season. I want to concentrate on the essentials

[David Alaba admits he is still open to new challenges, with it possible that ambition could lead him away from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2020] My focus is on Bayern. I don’t know what will happen next year, but I have always stressed that I am a player looking for new challenges - whether that will be at Bayern or elsewhere, I cannot say

[A loan deal for Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho has been agreed, with Alaba admitting that fresh faces are necessary despite Bayern doing another domestic double in 2018-19] The season lasts a long time, and we need not only a high-level squad but also a big squad. I think there should be one or two more players to raise the level of competition and to be well positioned with respect to depth. I have faith in our bosses and I think there is still some work to be done

[Kovac laments lethargic Bayern despite Mainz mauling] We struggled to get into the game in the first 20 minutes; we weren’t aggressive enough, we weren’t quick enough. We also made a few mistakes, it’s difficult then. Mainz did a very good job. We got a grip after the first cooling break. I’m proud to be part of this team. Everyone hits the gas in training, you can see everyone loves football. And when we put it into practice as a unit at the weekend it’s great of course

[Bayern Munich’s long-serving left-back David Alaba’s future at the Bundesliga champions appears to be up in the air] I’m not worried about that at all. At the moment, we have world-class defenders in our team who are injured. I know my job right now and I’m trying to help the team. Whether or not I will stay in this position, we’ll find out

[Asked whether he would be seeking a contract extension or looking to move on] I can imagine both: staying here or taking a different route. At the moment, however, we have goals here and I want to achieve them with Bayern Munich.

[He has been hugely impressed with the way Alphonso Davies has adapted to his top-flight surroundings] I was thrown in at the deep end very early, maybe even younger. It is nice to see him swimming freely! He is doing really, really well. He is a boy who wants to develop, who listens and can be guided in training sessions. It’s nice to see him doing well. He is a player who is very brave, and he improvises well. You need that at the top level these days and he really does it very well

[David Alaba on Joshua Zirkzee] Joshua Zirkzee has integrated well into the team from day one, he picks things up quickly and he always wants to learn. It is very nice that he is being rewarded. He is a boy with a lot of potential. He has a talent that not everyone has. But talent alone is not enough. He must certainly try to work even more

[David Alaba has has been closely monitored Alphonso Davies’ impact at left-back] I was thrown in at the deep end very early, maybe even younger. So it’s nice to see him swimming so freely!

You need that at the top level these days and he really does it very well

[David Alaba has left the door open for a potential move to the Premier League in the future] We’ll see [what happens in the future]. I know the Premier League very well because I followed it a lot when I was younger. I supported Arsenal. Patrick Vieira was one of my favourite players. At the moment I don’t think too much about it, but I can imagine playing somewhere else

I am very focused on Bayern Munich. We really want to reach our goals and I really want to help the team. We’re in a good way to reach our goals in the Bundesliga, in the Pokal [cup] and maybe also to make a dream come true in the Champions League. We know that it is all about the small things to win the Champions League, the little details and what I know is we have a great team and a great team spirit. You can see that in our training and in our game at the moment

[David Alaba believes Lewandowski deserves to be at the top with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo after shone yet again in Bayern Munich’s 3-0 victory over Chelsea] Yes, I think so. He’s a world-class player and a world-class striker. We all know that he can score goals and he showed another side of himself today by giving assists. We know that he is very important to us and we’re grateful to have him in our squad. He shows it every weekend - he’s one of the best and maybe the best striker in the world. He scores goals in almost every game and, of course, I think he deserves to be at the top and spoken about with those guys

I hope so, he deserves it. I see how hard he works every day. He would deserve it. With Chelsea having been condemned to their worst margin of defeat at home in their history, Bayern could be forgiven for thinking that they have one foot already in the quarter-finals, but the defender made it clear that there is still plenty of work to do

That’s not how we think. There’s a second game and we still have to play that second game. We did very well in the first game, we know that, but anything can happen in football. We have to believe in ourselves but there’s still a long way until the final. We have another game against Chelsea and we have to win to get through. We’ll see. We go from game to game

[Alaba suggests movement on Bayern Munich extension ‘in the coming weeks’] Look, I try to focus on the essentials, on the games. It is very good for me. That is where my focus is entirely. We have no deadline. We will see in the coming weeks what will happen next. At the moment, everything is calm

[Lewandowski added a second before Alphonso Davies rounded off the scoring two minutes later in an emphatic victory] We are very, very ambitious. The mood in the team is really great. We want to win every game, and you can see that too. We are keeping our foot on the gas.

I try to help the team. It’s fun to play on this team. I still have an urge to attack that I want to let happen. [Davies] is a super boy. He always wants to learn, listens and enjoys developing himself further

[One of Davies’ partners in defence, David Alaba, singled out the Canadian for praise after the match] This is a super boy who puts his foot down every day in training. He always tries to learn. He also listens and tries to implement it. You can see that very well at the weekend that he enjoys developing himself further. He just does it brilliantly
