Personally I'm not questioning the sources, but I don't think we should overreact and hate on Alex either.
The team did nothing wrong to him IMO, all the contrary... but he needed to be a in pride driven mindset of "let's show every body how wrong they are, how I'll make this one in a million chance work out".
So the fact that he had bad feeling towards those who, legitimately, were doubtful and didn't believe he could do it is understandable.

Now, he definitely should know better, understand the situation, be thankful for the opportunity and walk away with class.

My issue with the media here is we know for a fact they are craving for those kind of stories and have to be pushing to get the narrative of the incredible come back story against all odds and even his own coaching staff... "But Alex, did they support you ? Did you feel like they believed in you ? etc...".
