Munich sensational Leverkusen manager Alonso as next  head coach

Manager Alonso Leverkusen begins discussions with Munich about a head coach

Bayern Munich, a prestigious German club where national soccer team defender Kim Min-jae plays, selected coach Xabi Alonso (43, Spain), who leads sensational Leverkusen, as its next head coach.

The German version of Sky Sports, a sports channel, reported on the 5th (Korean time) that Munich had its first discussion with coach Alonso about how to lead the team starting this summer.

Leverkusen's contract with coach Alonso runs until 2026, so if Munich wants to take coach Alonso, it must pay a penalty of 15 million euros (about 21.7 billion won) to 25 million euros (about 36.2 billion won) to Leverkusen.

Nevertheless, the reason he moved quickly to recruit players was because Coach Alonso showed excellent leadership at Leverkusen.

Leverkusen is currently in first place in the Bundesliga (64 points).They did not lose a single game with 20 wins and 4 draws.

With 10 games left, the gap with Munich in second place (54 points) is 10 points, so the championship appears likely.

Leverkusen has maintained its status as a strong team for a long time, but has never won the Bundesliga.Finished runner-up five times.

Coach Alonso, who took charge of Leverkusen in October 2022, ranked 6th in the 2022-2023 season and led the team to the brink of its first-ever win this season.

Director Alonso

Coach Alonso, a famous midfielder, played for Liverpool (England) and Real Madrid (Spain) as a player before retiring in Munich.

In Munich, he was coached by current Manchester City (England) coach Pep Guardiola, who is considered the best coach of this era.

Perhaps that is why his style, which emphasizes possession and passing work, is evaluated to be similar to that of coach Guardiola.

Munich's situation is very difficult.

Second place, 10 points behind the leader, is a very humiliating result for Munich, the 'absolute top' of the Bundesliga.

Moreover, there is a high possibility that Munich will be 'unrelated' this season for the first time in 12 years.

Munich, who had already been eliminated early in the second round of the German Football Association (DFB) Pokal by losing to Saarbrücken of the third division, is on the verge of being eliminated in the round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League (UCL).

Last month, Munich decided to terminate the contract with Thomas Tuchel, the current head coach, a year early in June of this year and has been looking for the next head coach.

Coach Tuchel's position has become so narrow that there are reports that he has lost the trust of the players in the locker room, so there is a possibility that the breakup will take place sooner.
