Alexandre Bras: “Left-back in international demand”

Alexandre Bras: “Left-back in international demand”

“It worked well against Poland,” says Alexander Bras, who of course understands the situation to a great extent.

After being substituted in the 63rd minute, the Upper Austria player needed just three minutes to get into the game before making Christoph Baumgartner's goal 2-1 with a brilliant pass.

“It was a great feeling, and not just because of the assist,” says the 23-year-old. “Being 2-1 up was amazing! Marco passed it perfectly, and Baume converted it very coolly. It's a really good move.” .

Record a perfect pass

The striker introduced himself as a serious substitute at left-back during the 90 minutes of the friendly match against Serbia, and in the 3-1 win over Poland, he once again showed his quality in the back four.

“I thought Bras was really good,” Ralf Rangnick said after the game. Nine passes of the ball, all seven passes arrived, two of them in the final third of the pitch. The statistics are impressive.

“It's great when you get faster from the back, when you run behind you, when you can cover long distances,” he said after the Serbia match.

“I like this position”

Compared to his original position on the left attacking side, good left-backs are few and far between. Will this essentially be a consideration for his future?

“This is a position that is in high demand in international football; there are not always that many players available,” Brass knows.

“I'm happy to take these experiences with me. This position is good for me, and I think I can fill it well. We'll see what happens in the future,” the double winner keeps everything open.

Letters of Uwe Hölzel

Speaking of the double win: he of course watched the 'Sky' documentary about SK Sturm's season, it was 'really cool'.

One of the main themes of the film are the motivational speeches given by Sturm-Co Uwe Hölzl.

“He's unique in his speeches, you won't find that twice. He does it great in his own way, here in the ÖFB team, the speeches are a little different,” he smiled. And no, “I don't actually miss Aoi's speeches yet.”

Interested parties from Italy

After a last-second move to Lorient collapsed last summer, Bras is also considered a hot candidate for a move this summer.

Clubs from Italy in particular, namely Napoli, Torino and Bologna, have recently been mentioned as potential interested parties. His contract with Graz extends until the summer of 2026.
