Bayer Leverkusen coach, still in the running in the Europa League, Xabi Alonso does not see himself leaving the German club this summer.
“Yes that is correct“: Xabi Alonso soberly answered on Wednesday the question of whether he would still be on the bench for Bayer Leverkusen next season, a club where he feels “very happy“, he estimated. “I am very happy with the team, and the club. I don’t worry about my future“Explained Xabi Alonso at a press conference, on the eve of facing AS Roma in the semi-finals of the Europa League on Thursday evening at home (9 p.m.).
Arrived at the head of the Leverkusen team at the beginning of October 2022 to replace the Swiss Gerardo Seoane, Xabi Alonso is under contract with Bayer Leverkusen until June 30, 2024. The 41-year-old Spaniard has recovered Bayer Leverkusen, which is gone from the fight to maintain (17th and penultimate when he arrived), to the fight for European places (7th two days from the end of the season).
In addition to a good situation in the Bundesliga, Bayer is still in contention in the Europa League. His performances for his first experience as a coach have aroused the greed of some major European clubs, including Tottenham and Real Madrid, according to the foreign press.
