Xabi Alonso breaks silence on replacing Klopp at Liverpool

Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso has addressed the ongoing speculation surrounding his potential departure from the club to assume managerial roles at either Liverpool or Bayern Munich in the upcoming summer.

Quoted by Fabrizio Romano on X, formerly Twitter, the Spanish tactician remained tight-lipped on the matter, emphasizing that he has no comments to offer regarding the circulating stories. Alonso reiterated his sole concentration on his current responsibilities at Leverkusen.

Below are Alonso’s full quotes in response to the recent speculation about his future…

Alonso has achieved remarkable success at Leverkusen this season, leading the club to an unexpected eight-point lead at the summit of the Bundesliga.

This surprising turn of events could potentially result in their inaugural German league title, ending Bayern Munich’s remarkable streak of eleven consecutive victories.

It’s challenging to envision a better-suited candidate for Liverpool than Alonso. Under his management, Leverkusen plays an attractive, stylish brand of football reminiscent of the tactics embraced by the current Reds squad under Klopp’s tenure.

While Klopp remains a revered figure at Anfield, his impending departure announcement has initiated speculation about his successor.

Alonso emerges as a strong contender, boasting not only managerial prowess but also a deep connection with Liverpool from his playing days.

Although the Bayern Munich managerial role could present an enticing opportunity, especially with Thomas Tuchel’s impending departure, Alonso appears reserved about any potential links with the club for now.
