'He forgets who Lewandowski's agent is!' - Alaba's agent strikes back at Bayern in contract stand-off


David Alaba Bayern Munich

David Alaba's agent has hit back at Bayern Munichsporting director Hasan Salihamidzic as the Austrian's public contract stand-off continues.

That process turned ugly last week when formerBayern president Uli Hoenessaccused Alaba's agentPini Zahavi of being a "greedy piranha."

The comments fromHoenesshave set off a public feud between club and player, with Alaba himself being forced to get involved and deny that his financial demands were excessive.

In an interview with Kicker,Salihamidzicmade it clear that although Alaba is a valued member of the squad, Bayern have two members ofthe team who will always command a higher salarythan any other players.

"At Bayern there is a sporting and financial upper limit: Robert Lewandowski and Manuel Neuer,"Salihamidzicsaid.

"I don't think David himself thinks he is above these two colleagues. Zahavi thinks in other dimensions. He can, but we won't follow him. We won't do crazy things like he might know from other clubs, and certainly not at a time when sales and profits are collapsing, in football as everywhere in business life."

In response to those commentsZahavi struck back atSalihamidzic, reminding the sporting director that because he also serves asLewandowski's agent, he is more than familiar with the Polish striker's value.

"I don't want to comment on this renewed approach," Zahavi told Sky Germany."Only this much: Mr Salihamidzic has apparently forgotten who Robert Lewandowski's agent is.

"I negotiated Robert's contract last year and logically I know exactly what he deserves. What we're asking for David is well below Robert's salary."

Alaba has been with Bayern since joining the club's academy in 2008 and has become a vital part of the sidesince breaking through with the first team in 2010.

The Austrian has made a total of 437 appearances for the club, claiming nineBundesligatitles during his time in Bavaria.
