The brothers conduct interviews with great players and coaches such as Miroslav Klose, Lukas Podolski and, most recently, Julian Nagelsmann.

For the first time, the Kroos brothers hosted a current teammate, David Alaba.

The topic of the podcast was also his transfer to the Isar at a young age.

Together with his former Bayern * team-mate Toni Kroos, he remembered his first contacts with the Munich team.

FC Bayern: David Alaba remembers moving to Munich - "They all showed me a bird"

At the age of 15, Alaba sat on the bench for the first time in the Austrian Bundesliga, back then he was already training with the professionals. "I also had offers for a professional contract from Austria Wien and other Austrian first division clubs," recalls Alaba. But it turned out differently in the end. "After the season I switched to the B-youth in Munich, where everyone showed me a bird back then," said the 29-year-old. Many thought the move was a step backwards, but for Alaba it was the start of a great career.

Toni Kroos, who also moved to FC Bayern * at the age of 16, followed up at this point and elicited more background information from Alaba.

“I actually wanted to go to England, and I already had offers there.

But Bavaria did not give up and said: Come on and take a look.

At that time it was Werner Kern (former junior manager, editor's note), who was in contact with my father, ”said the Austrian.

“He picked us up from the airport and then went to Säbener Strasse *.

From that moment on, I fell in love straight away and made the decision relatively quickly, ”said Alaba.

David Alaba: Team-mate Toni Kroos remembers Bayern's offer - "Always the same scam"

“Always the same trick, that's what they did with me,” Kroos said with a laugh. “That was also Werner Kern at the time. They invited us back then, shipped us to the Bayerischer Hof and watched the Champions League. You couldn't say no anymore. ”As Kern told

, it was a game against Arsenal in which he billeted Kroos and his family in the British hotel. Kroos is said to have agreed - probably also due to the enthusiasm about the encounters with Arsene Wenger and Thierry Henry.

Kroos went to Madrid after winning the World Cup in 2014, after seven years he saw David Alaba again, who did not renew his contract with FC Bayern and moved to Spain.

Currently, Real Madrid * are leading the table in their domestic league and Alaba are well on their way to winning at least one title in a first year.
