    ❌Bundesliga is = Saudi League❌
    Both r extremely unfair/corrupt leagues that r controlled by one mafia-favorite team; BM, by Munich Mafia & alHilal by the Saudi Royal Mafia🤏

    Simple, if Alonso win Bundesliga than he is an Elite manager, because looking at history, the last manager that was able to win Bundesliga without Bayern was Jurgen Klopp and he is proven to be one of the best manager in the world in this era.

    It’s funny how Madrid/Liverpool/Bayern fans aren’t surprised on how god Xabi is as a Manager we all seen it ourselves when he was on the field he was a Quarterback in a sense making the plays and long passes. With Klopp and Carlo extending I really see him at Bayern next and then after a 3-4 year stint going to either Madrid or Liverpool tbh.

    Let's see him finish 3 full seasons at leverkusen then if he peforms very well, he goes to a big club .

    I am hoping he is the next manager of Liverpool, always loved him as a player and he seems to have the same magic touch so far with management…

    Next Liverpool manager when Klopp chooses to retire

    Too early to say, but so far he has been awesome.

  12. @deadlypyre

    Alonso will be the next Liverpool manager

    Gonna be one of the greats❤

    Watching him ping those passes in training makes me smile. He's still got it.

    Klopp has 2 trophies in a decade at Liverpool. How's that elite? He had a great 2 years, but won nothing before and has won nothing afterwards.

  16. @LayDurafe

    January 23, 2024 at 9:23 am

    Klopp and Guardiola have titles.

    Stop early comparisons when Xabi doesn’t even have one to his name.

    Andre Villas Boas was touted as next Mourinho after winning treble with Porto and look how he ended up.

    Consistency over 10 year period is to even come close to a comparison mate.

  17. @randyschwaggins

    January 23, 2024 at 9:23 am

    Ah yes…the next manager ready to be destroyed by Man Utd 😂

  18. @InPursuit-ToddMay

    Destined for Real Madrid within 4 years

  19. @DidYaServe

    January 23, 2024 at 9:23 am

    He's going to become the best manager in the world. Real Madrid and Liverpool are the main teams planning on getting him but Manchester City could be invincible if they sought him out as a long-term eventual replacement for Guardiola.

  20. @jftt42

    January 23, 2024 at 9:23 am

    Right, and people were saying last season that vincent kompany is on track to replace pep. Keep hyping up baby coaches and comparing them to the greats; it'll only make you look pathetic soon enough.

  21. @AEWest-qx2sp

    January 23, 2024 at 9:23 am

    Christ, give him a chance, he's only been a manager 5 minutes.

  22. @mystikal518

    January 23, 2024 at 9:23 am

    Destined for the top

    “The rise of Alonso” what is he? A German Reich ?

  24. @dk7mkd74

    The British Press can be unforgiving to foreign managers !

  25. @JayTheRed8

    Players who have such game intelligence and dont rely on athleticism usually go on to make good coaches or good managers. Guardiola is the perfect example, not the quickest player but understood the game intrinsically. Alonso again not the most athletic, but world class on the ball and understood the game like very few. I have a sneaky suspicion that when Sergio Busquets decides to hang his boots up, if he ever decides to become a coach he will be elite. I seen a video recently and when Griezmann was asked to name the world best football brain his immediate reaction was "Busquets".

    Only one club Alonso would 100% manage in the Premiership, just one club he has a connection with, the staff the fans. Being from the Basque country, he understands the difficulties the area faced and still does with papers like the Mail & Sun, a war that's been going on since Thatcher. He understands the football ethos and what it means to be a RED. After Kloppo? We don't want to think, but he was and will be at Anfield….

  28. @Zefroniac

    January 23, 2024 at 9:23 am

    I think technically and tactically he is a brilliant coach and mentality wise as a player. But he may hit a point where he can't excel further…. Right now, his doing a fantastic job. Not all players make a good coach

  29. @kchattopadhyaya

    January 23, 2024 at 9:23 am

    He is a football Genius of exceptional calibre , i wish all the very best to him , as a Utd fan i wish if they can somehow accede him to manage ManUtd

    If Guardiola actually leaves City in 2025 I can see Alonso being his replacement.
