Xabi Alonso (41, Spain) coach dismissed the rumor. As he was recently mentioned as a candidate for the new head coach of Tottenham Hotspur (England), attention was focused on his future move, but he plans to lead Bayer Leverkusen (Germany) in the next season as well, and nailed that he would not leave.
At an official press conference on the 4th (Korean time), when asked about being mentioned as a candidate for Tottenham’s new coach, Alonso said, “I’ve been in football for many years. It’s natural for rumors like this to come out.” A lot. It’s been 100% focused on that in my head over the past few months.”
Manager Alonso has recently ’emerged’ as a candidate for Tottenham’s new command tower. In particular, after taking the Leverkusen baton in the middle of last year’s October, he received active attention as he was highly praised for immediately succeeding in rebounding with his outstanding leadership. In fact, it raised the ranking to 6th in the German Bundesliga, and led the semifinals in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League (UEL).
In the midst of this, locals saw a high possibility of appointment, such as being expected to be the best eleven when coach Alonso took over as Tottenham command tower. Son Heung-min (30) was always a regular starter, and Florian Birz (20), Jeremy Frimpong (22), and Piero Incapie (21), who are currently playing for Leverkusen, were newly added to the lineup. 메이저사이트
However, manager Alonso completely denied rumors of Tottenham, declaring that he would keep the remaining contract period, saying, “I will be at Leverkusen next season as well.” Already, revenge experts predict he won’t be leaving this summer, based on his press conference answers.
Coach Alonso, who was considered one of the best midfielders in the world during his active career, walked the path of a coach right after retiring. He went on to coach the youth team of Real Madrid (Spain) and then coach the B team of Real Sociedad (Spain). Then, from October of last year, he took the Leverkusen baton and is continuing his career smoothly.
