It’s a mixed feeling.

The conceded goal was my fault. I absolutely wanted to correct my mistake, then I scored the goal and assisted another.”

"

I started working on my free-kicks from a young age. Mehmet Scholl was my coach in the reserve team and he really helped me to refine my technique.

Nowadays Robert Lewandowski and I often stay back after training to practice free-kicks. I'm glad he got one against Schalke and am happy it worked out for me against Mainz."

– David Alaba on the secrets to his free-kick prowess

"Thomas Muller came up to me and said, 'You're the one who has to make the difference.'

I like the extra responsibility. Before that I might’ve been more casual in my final balls but now I want them to be effective every single time."
