Xabi Alonso Dismisses Speculation Amid Bayern Munich Coaching Rumours

Xabi Alonso, the current coach of Bayer Leverkusen, has dismissed the speculation surrounding his future as a distraction for the Bundesliga leaders, following Bayern Munich's announcement that coach Thomas Tuchel will be leaving at the end of the season. Alonso's impressive performance with Leverkusen, leading them to an eight-point lead over Bayern in the Bundesliga, has made him one of the most sought-after coaches in European soccer, with potential vacancies at Bayern and Liverpool, both clubs where he played during his illustrious career.

When asked about the speculation and Bayern's history of acquiring players and coaches from rival teams, Alonso remained unfazed, stating, "It's not a problem. It's a super opponent that we have, but there is no distraction." This response reflects Alonso's focus on the task at hand, as he aims to maintain Leverkusen's title challenge and continue their impressive unbeaten run of 32 games in all competitions.

The news of Tuchel's departure from Bayern has further fueled the speculation surrounding Alonso's future, as both Liverpool and Bayern are in search of new coaches. Alonso's success with Leverkusen, coupled with his history with both clubs, makes him a strong candidate for either position. However, Alonso has remained tight-lipped about his plans, emphasizing his commitment to Leverkusen and his desire to achieve success with the club.

Leverkusen's title challenge continues on Friday with a home match against Mainz, while Bayern faces Leipzig on Saturday. Alonso's team remains unbeaten in 32 games across all competitions and is a contender in the German Cup semi-finals and the Europa League. Alonso's ability to maintain this impressive form and guide Leverkusen to silverware will undoubtedly influence his future prospects and the decisions of potential suitors.
