David Alaba

Bayern Munich PresidentHerbert Hainer has insisted that his club's contract offer to David Alaba is "fair and competitive" as a stand-off with the Austrian continues.

The comments from Hoeness forced Alaba himself to get involved in the fray, with the defender denying accusations that his financial demands were excessive.

Though he admitted that Hoeness can go too far at times,Hainerhas also defended Bayern'sformer president's words and said that his club's contract offer to Alabais more than reasonable.

“Uli Hoeness is a man of public football life and of course he sometimes puts it a bit pointedly.But in principle he is right,"Hainersaid at aBILD100 Sport event on Wednesday.

"The coronavirus pandemic has shown economic necessities in football.That was his wake-up call to all parties."

Hainer added that Bayern have made Alaba "a fair and competitive offer.It is up to him whether he accepts it".

The club president also revealed that Bayern were making contingency plans in case Alaba leaves the European champions.

Hainer said that Bayern have"a plan B and a plan C if we don't come to an agreement with players in the end".

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

Bayern had a banner 2019-20 campaign, winning the Bundesliga and German Cup before defeating PSG in the Champions League final last month to clinch a treble.

Hainerhas said his club's goals in the new season are no less than repeating the heroics of last season.

"We have resolved to defend the triple. Nobody has done that yet," he said.

Bayern got their campaign off to a flying start in the Bundesliga last week, crushing Schalke 8-0 in their league opener behind a hat-trick from Serge Gnabry.
