Xabi Alonso Drops Hint on Potential Liverpool U-Turn After Clarifying Bayer Leverkusen Future

Xabi Alonso has achieved a remarkable Bundesliga victory with Bayer Leverkusen, sparking interest from clubs like Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

After leading Bayer Leverkusen to their first-ever Bundesliga title, Alonso’s future remains uncertain, as he admits he “doesn’t know what it means for the future.”

Leverkusen’s triumph, secured with a resounding 5-0 win over Werder Bremen, marks their unbeaten run throughout the season, fueling hopes for further success in the German Cup and Europa League.

Alonso’s managerial success in ending Bayern Munich’s 11-year dominance of the Bundesliga has attracted attention from top European clubs like Liverpool and Bayern Munich, where he previously played.

Despite the interest from his former clubs, Alonso has confirmed his commitment to Leverkusen. However, his recent comment while celebrating the title win has left some questioning his future plans.

He said: “When I feel that the team is behind me, the feeling that they want to believe, it’s much easier. That was my great enjoyment, that I had the feeling that the team was really committed, and once you have that it’s much easier. I don’t know what it will mean for the future, but at the moment it feels pretty great.”

Alonso recently claimed, despite interest and speculation linking him with moves elsewhere, that he felt remaining in his current role was the best thing he could do. He’s still in his first major job as a manager and claimed there was more work to do at Leverkusen.

“Last week I had a meeting [with club officials] and informed them of the decision to continue being coach of Bayer Leverkusen,” he said. “After lot of talks about my future, I used the break to reflect and make my decision. I feel this is the right place to be for me as a young coach. My job at Bayer is not over. I want to help the club, help the players to develop, the board is great … it’s all fantastic here.”


Alonso is seen as a potential future manager at one of his former clubs, with Liverpool in need of a successor to Jurgen Klopp and Bayern Munich searching for someone to replace Thomas Tuchel. Real Madrid, another of Alonso’s former clubs, currently has Carlo Ancelotti in charge.

Following Leverkusen’s title triumph, Bayern’s new sporting director Max Eberl singled out Alonso for praise, acknowledging the impact of his football philosophy on the Bundesliga. Eberl stated, “Your style of football has captivated the Bundesliga. While FC Bayern’s dominance has been disrupted, we are now focused on regaining momentum.”
