Alonso to remain at Leverkusen

Xabi Alonso has confirmed his commitment to Bayer Leverkusen, stating that he will remain in his role as manager for the upcoming season. This decision comes amidst heavy speculation linking him to managerial positions at Liverpool and Bayern Munich, particularly after Jurgen Klopp announced his departure from Liverpool and Thomas Tuchel’s impending exit from Bayern.

Alonso, the former Liverpool midfielder, believes that Leverkusen is the ideal environment for his growth as a young coach. The club’s remarkable performance this season, including their push for a first Bundesliga title and their unbeaten record across all competitions, has solidified his conviction in staying with Leverkusen.

Expressing his contentment with the decision, Alonso highlighted the dedication, ambition, and hunger displayed by the players as pivotal factors influencing his choice to remain. He conveyed that he had communicated his decision to Leverkusen’s directors last week, following a period of reflection during the international break.

Despite the intense speculation surrounding his future, Alonso’s focus remains firmly on Leverkusen, emphasising that his job with the team is far from complete. With a clear sense of purpose and determination, he aims to continue guiding Leverkusen towards further achievements in the seasons ahead.

Betting Implications

Alonso had been one of the favourites to become the next Liverpool manager, and he was also heavily linked with Bayern Munich. This development has seen Roberto de Zerbi of Brighton and Hove Albion installed as favourite to take over at Bayern and second favourite to take the Liverpool job behind Ruben Amorim with bet365. Incidentally, the bookie also have De Zerbi as third favourite for the Barcelona job.
