UCL: Xabi Alonso takes final decision in replacing Ancelotti as Real Madrid manager


Following their defeat to Manchester City in the Champions League, Real Madrid legend, Xabi Alonso has ruled out a return to the club as their new manager.

The Spaniard has instead pledged his future to Bayer Leverkusen.

Alonso has become a target for top clubs in Europe following his impressive run during his short spell in charge of Die Werkself.

The former midfielder has guided Bayer Leverkusen to the Europa League semi finals where his side face AS Roma in the second leg of their semifinal with Leverkusen trailing Jose Mourinho’s side 1-0 on aggregate.

There are reports that Los Blancos want the Spaniard as a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, who could leave the club, having finished the season poorly.

Real Madrid were beaten 4-0 by Manchester City on Wednesday and got knocked out of the Champions League 5-1 on aggregate and it all looks set now for Ancelotti to say his goodbye despite that his contract expires in 2024.

Asked about the links ahead of his side’s clash with Roma, Alonso told his pre-match press conference, “Yes, I’m gonna stay at Bayer Leverkusen. I’m very happy at this club and with this team.”
