27-year-old from Salzburg to boost our goalkeeping ranks
We have signed a new goalkeeper for the new season in Alexander Schlager. The 27-year-old from Salzburg is arriving in the summer from LASK and has signed a contract with our Red Bulls until 30 June 2027.
From Salzburg to Salzburg
Alex Schlager learned the art of goalkeeping in Salzburg, having gone through all the age grades at the Red Bull Football Academy (winning three league titles). His career then led him to FC Liefering, and then to RB Leipzig's U19 side, SV Grödig, FAC and then LASK, for whom the 1.84-metre goalkeeper made 213 appearances over close to four years. The man from Salzburg has also made seven appearances for the Austrian national team.
