Xabi Alonso could replace Thomas Tuchel as Bayern Munich head coach

Xabi Alonso could replace Thomas Tuchel as Bayern Munich head coach Transfers

Xabi Alonso has been enjoying an impressive record at Bayer Leverkusen, where he has been in charge since last season. Amidst speculation about his departure next season, Liverpool is also looking ahead to signing the Spanish coach.

Replacing Jurgen Klopp, who has led the first team since 2015, is a difficult task, but the player’s history of brilliant performances at Anfield as a player is an evaluation point beyond his skills as a leader.

On the other hand, the departure of coach Thomas Tuchel, who will lead Bayern Munich from March 2023, has also been hectic. The team has not performed as well as expected, and the erratic team performance they recently showed against Leverkusen is troubling the leadership.

Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist, said that the coach’s dismissal is unlikely at this point, but that he would not be surprised if some kind of announcement regarding his departure is made after the end of the season. He suggested that Xabi Alonso could be named as his successor.

“Bayern Munich have spoken publicly and privately about the manager situation, saying that their intention is not to fire Thomas Tuchel,”

“Of course, people at the club are very disappointed after the 3-0 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen – the performance was poor, and the general atmosphere at the club is not what was expected.”

“Bayern are not happy, but it hasn’t changed their plans for the moment.” 

“At the moment the situation is not easy, and for sure the situation of Tuchel will be assessed at the end of the season.”

“There is no intention to make a change now, but of course there will be internal talks about the situation because they can’t continue like this in the Bundesliga, and now Champions League games are coming too.”

“Results in these games will of course be important when it comes to assessing the position of Tuchel.”

“It’s important to say that Xabi Alonso, a former Bayern player, has always been appreciated by people at the club, and now he’s also having this fantastic experience as Bayer Leverkusen manager.”

“He could be a future candidate for the Bayern job, as they have appreciated him since last year, but it’s not something happening now, and Liverpool are also well informed on the situation of Alonso – they know everything about his contract situation at Leverkusen and how to appoint the Spaniard in the summer.”
