The Bundesliga folded? Xabi Alonso lets loose!


By: Manu Tournoux

Bayer Leverkusen are top of the Bundesliga, but their manager, Xabi Alonso, remains cautious.

Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen are in pole position to win their first German championship title. Following its victory in the Rhine derby against Cologne (0-2) in the Bundesliga this Sunday, the Werkself (1st) enjoys a 10-point lead over its runner-up, Bayern Munich, held by Friborg (2-2 ) last Friday. Despite this comfortable lead ten days before the end of the championship, Xabi Alonso does not want to ignite prematurely.

The Games are not done

“To be honest, we don’t really look at the rankings. That doesn’t mean anything for the moment, the Spaniard judged on Sunday in front of journalists. We know our position, but we don’t need to think about it, because what we did today (Sunday) means everything. We have worked well so far, but there are still ten matches left and a lot of work for us, for all the teams. »

He added: “We now go to the Europa League to try to compete as well as we did and, hopefully, we can progress to the next round. This is what we are going to do. We therefore continue to set ourselves short objectives for the season. We are still at the beginning of March. We’ll talk about this later. »
