Real Madrid player to be at Euro 2024 in coaching role

In December, David Alaba suffered a serious knee injury during Real Madrid's win over Villarreal at the Santiago Bernabéu. It was revealed that the 31-year-old has suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament, which has ended his participation for the season, and will also play no part in Euro 2024.

Despite this, Alaba is set to feature in the tournament in an official capacity, with Relfo reporting that Austria coach Ralf Rangnick has asked the centre-back to be part of his coaching staff.

Alaba is expected to accept the proposal, after feeling “happy and grateful” for the opportunity provided to him by Rangnick. He hopes to inspire Austria to exit the Euro 2024 group, which includes France, Poland and the Netherlands, at the very least.

Alaba should return to action at the start of Real Madrid's 2024-25 season, although his regular place in the team is not certain. Antonio Rudiger has been impressive in his absence, and Eder Militao is likely to start as well.
