Xabi Alonso, a former Liverpool, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid midfielder is currently in charge of Real Sociedad’s B side.
This summer, though, he will take over as boss of Borussia Mönchengladbach, according to The Guardian.
Bayern’s chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, told Kicker in 2019: “I think we have to make an effort to bring Xabi Alonso back to Bayern at some point. He is the best central midfielder we’ve had in recent years. He wasn’t the quickest, but he was the best strategy and the most intelligent I’ve ever seen in our midfield. He was a marvellous player, who speaks four languages and German fluently. He was a real personality. I’d really like him to return to Bayern one day, he’s a true gentleman.
So, Alonso will return to Germany in June to take over as head coach of Mönchengladbach.
After triggering a clause in his new contract, current coach Marco Rose agreed on a deal last month.
He is set to become Borussia Dortmund boss at the end of the season.
