The most sought-after manager going into the impending summer transfer window is Bayer Leverkusen man Xabi Alonso.

The Spaniard has transformed Bayer Leverkusen since his appointment in October of 2022.

Prior to the 42-year-old joining, the Bundesliga team was languishing in the relegation zone.

It was Alonso’s first job out of his starting role as manager of Real Sociedad’s reserve side.

Choosing someone with such little experience was a gamble for Bayer Leverkusen, but it paid off.

With a sixth-place result in 2022–23, Alonso helped the German team return to Europe in his debut season.

But the Spaniard has truly outperformed expectations this term.

Alonso’s side are currently top of the Bundesliga with an eight-point lead and look set to finally end Bayern Munich’s stranglehold on the Bundesliga title.

Leverkusen has advanced to both the Europa League round of quarterfinals and the DFB-Pokal semifinals under the stewardship of the Spaniard.

Understandably, this has caused both Liverpool and Bayern Munich to come sniffing around Alonso, with both European giants on the hunt for a new manager for next season.

Sky Germany recently suggested that if Alonso were to end up leaving Leverkusen (which is not a guarantee), the Spaniard would opt for Bayern over Liverpool.

But Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky has just confirmed that whoever lands up with Alonso next season will be blessed in abundance.

What did the Bayer Leverkusen man say about Xabi Alonso?

Lukas Hradecky is not the first player under Alonso’s guidance to heap praise and further stoke the hype around the Spaniard.

Alejandro Grimaldo, who is enjoying a prolific season from left-back, asserted that his manager will ‘mark an era in the dugouts’.

But now Hradecky has gone one step further to try and identify what exactly has made Alonso such a success at the BayArena:

“The hype is definitely justified,” Hradecky began via the Liverpool Echo.

“He brings standards, a winning mentality, train how you play and how you go on every action in every training session with intensity.

He brings football intelligence with him.”

“You guys don’t see him on a daily basis but the atmosphere he’s brought in Leverkusen – we didn’t have it before – I think it comes from the way he has experienced football.”

“He lives the game as he did when he was a player.

It was here when he came but it’s up here right now.”

“It’s the best Leverkusen team I’ve experienced
