Bundesliga Xabi Alonso commits future to Leverkusen: “This is the right place”

Xabi Alonso confirmed his decision to remain at Bayer Leverkusen this summer, informing the German club of his decision during the international break.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, the Spaniard said: “It’s been a season we have had a lot of speculation regarding my future. Until now we have had so many games, been pretty busy and focused, and I wanted to reflect during the international break and take a decision.

“Last week I had a very good meeting when I informed of them [Leverkusen’s directors] of my decision to continue being coach of Bayer Leverkusen. For sure all the decisions you need to analyse well. I try to take the right ones, I try to take them in a natural way.”

Despite Leverkusen’s incredible position 10 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, this is still only Alonso’s first full season in charge and he has pointed out this, too, saying: “At the moment this is the right place for me to develop as a coach, I am a young coach. Right now this is the right place.“I have to thank the management. The club had been supportive and I feel respected by all departments.

“The fans they have shown great support and they have reasons to believe and dream we will have a great season. I have a great staff to help me work day by day, and so for sure the players.”
