Xabi Alonso has ‘nothing new to say’ about Bayern Munich links

Bayer Leverkusen head coach Xabi Alonso dismissed recent rumors about Bayern Munich, stating there’s “nothing new to say.”

Speculation has linked Alonso with the Liverpool job ever since Jurgen Klopp announced his departure at the end of the season. However, Bayern Munich has also emerged as a potential destination for the Spaniard.

With current Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel set to leave his position at the season’s end, attention has turned to Alonso as a possible replacement.

Despite the rumors, Alonso has remained focused on his current role at Leverkusen, where he has led the team to an eight-point lead in the Bundesliga and secured a spot in the Europa League last 16. Their next match against Mainz is scheduled for Friday.

Addressing the media on Thursday, Alonso quickly dismissed questions about his future, indicating his commitment to Leverkusen.

“Maybe you have some questions about my future, but I’m sorry, I have nothing new to say. I wanted to say that beforehand,” he told a press conference, via Bild.

“Right now I’m the (Leverkusen) coach. That’s for sure. I have nothing new to say for the future. We will see. It’s normal that there are questions, but it’s off topic now. Now is not the time for me to talk much about it.”

Asked if Bayern had contacted him since the Tuchel announcement, Alonso replied: “I understand the question, but I have to say again that I have nothing new to say. It’s just hypothetical.”

The 42-year-old also insisted it had been a normal week for his squad and claimed he was currently preparing to be Leverkusen boss next season given his contract runs until 2026.

He said: “I’m assuming that right now.

“This week was normal. It was quiet for us. We had three training sessions. That is normal.

“I know that it is my goal, it is my job, to be successful with the team. This is my work. We are in a very good situation right now. We want to continue like this. That’s enough for me.”
