Former Bayern Munich legend Bastian Schweinsteiger makes a bold claim about former teammate

German legend, Bastian Schweinsteiger, gives his verdict on one of his club mate. Schweinsteiger believes that Xabi Alonso will love to coach Liverpool someday in future.

The announcement of Jurgen Klopp departing is a huge blow for the fans. Since then, the search for a suitable figure is on at Merseyside. Names like Roberto De Zerbi and Xabi Alonso are the forerunners in the list. And then you have the likes of Ruben Amorim or Julian Nagelsmann, who could easily attract the decision makers on Merseyside.

The German manager is leaving behind a legacy at Anfield to be carried forward by his successor. Keeping this in mind, Bastian was discussing how can his former teammate be in the mix to manage Liverpool. He was covering the Bayer Leverkusen game for ARD in Germany, he shares how crucial the upcoming weeks are going to be for Spaniard.

I know Xabi and I believe that it is his big dream to coach Liverpool one day. I certainly think it’s possible that he will move to Liverpool in the summer. I want him to stay in the Bundesliga for a bit longer because he is a godsend for the Bundesliga.

Were it not for Leverkusen being so good, Bayern would already be miles ahead in terms of points. Then the situation would be different. But because Leverkusen are so good, we have a title race.”

Indeed, the fans will agree with former Bayern man. They will love to see their icon returning to Anfield and leading the title charge during his first season at the club. Although the transition will not be an easier one, but supporters will be looking forward for any more updates on this soon.
