Xavi Alonso (43), who has been mentioned as a likely replacement for Jurgen Klopp (57), who is leaving Liverpool, has declined to comment on his position as Liverpool manager.
British media “Liverpool Echo” reported on Wednesday that Jürgen Klopp is leaving Liverpool, and Xavi Alonso was asked about his relationship with Liverpool. However, Alonso conveyed that it is not time to think about it yet.
Coach Klopp, who led Liverpool’s golden age for nine years, is leaving his team. Klopp conveyed his intention to step down as a coach at the end of this season, and he would stay with him until the rest of the season before saying goodbye.

With the departure of Klopp, several coaches were mentioned as replacements. Among them, the name of Alonso, a legendary midfielder of Liverpool, has emerged as a likely candidate.
Alonso is a legendary midfielder who played for Liverpool for five years from 2004 to 2009. Alonso, who was a key player in Liverpool’s midfield along with another legend, Steven Gerrard, scored 18 goals and 20 assists in 210 matches, and showed his best performance as he topped the UCL in the 2004-05 season.
Alonso has been leading Leverkusen in this season’s best performance. Leverkusen is solidifying its lead in the German Bundesliga with 15 wins and three ties. Leverkusen has had an overwhelming record of 24 wins and three ties in 27 matches, making it the only undefeated team in Europe.
It is natural to assume that Alonso, who is enjoying a successful managerial career, will take over as the coach of his former team Liverpool. However, Alonso has expressed his intention to focus on Leverkusen, while retreating to speak less about Liverpool.
Alonso said, “First of all, the news was amazing. I have respect for Jurgen and I have great admiration for the things he has achieved and the way he has done it. But I am having a really great time here at the moment. It is a pleasure to work here and gives me a spirit of challenge. In Leverkusen, we have an intense and beautiful journey and we are doing our best to prepare our players for the next job.”
“To be honest, now is not the time to think about the next step. I want to think about where I am right now. I’m in a good position right now and I’m enjoying it enough. All I can say is that now is the right time for the team to succeed. I don’t know what will happen in the future. I don’t really care at the moment,” he said. 메이저 토토사이트
