Back at 'home', Xabi Alonso becomes a coach in the Bundesliga

After the dismissal of Gerardo Seoane, Bayer Leverkusen has appointed the former midfielder of Liverpool and Real Madrid, Xabi Alonso, as the new coach.

The German club did not have a good start, as they managed to secure only 5 points in eight games played, being classified as the second lowest level team in the Bundesliga.

The news of Seoane being replaced by Alonso was confirmed through a statement from the club.

"Bayer 04 Leverkusen have parted ways with coach Gerardo Seoane. The Swiss coach is succeeded by Xabi Alonso, who has a contract until June 30, 2024," the statement said.

5 years ago Xabi Alonso said 'farewell' to Bayern Munich leaving the club with three Bundesliga titles won.
