“For now, it’s a moment to enjoy winning the Bundesliga. (Treble, etc.) I’ll put aside thoughts about the future for a moment!”

Coach Xabi Alonso, who led German professional soccer Bundesliga Leverkusen to its first league title in 120 years since its founding, was filled with joy.

Leverkusen defeated Werder Bremen 5-0 in the 2023-2024 Bundesliga round 29 home game held at BayArena in Leverkusen, Germany on the 15th (Korean time).

Leverkusen (79 points, 25 wins, 4 draws) widened the gap with second-place Bayern Munich (63 points, 20 wins, 3 draws, 6 losses) to 16 points and confirmed the league championship regardless of the results of the remaining 5 games.

This is the first Bundesliga victory for Leverkusen, which was founded in 1904 and has only finished second in the league five times. 메이저사이트

Coach Alonso, who took charge of Leverkusen in October 2022, finished last season in 6th place and led the team to the highest point by going undefeated in 29 games this season.

According to APTN, Coach Alonso was delighted in the post-game interview, saying, “I can’t believe it. We deserved to enjoy (the win).”

While he’s at it, he could even achieve a ‘treble’ (three wins).

Leverkusen will play the German Football Association (DFB)-Pokal final against Kaiserslautern on the 26th of next month.

In addition, they are in an advantageous position to advance to the semifinals of the UEFA Europa League.

Regarding the possibility of a treble, Coach Alonso said, “Now is the moment to enjoy winning the Bundesliga. I will prepare for the remaining games, but I will put aside thoughts about the future for a moment,” and said that he would enjoy the joy of winning the league more.

It was last February that Leverkusen felt they would win the Bundesliga.

Coach Alonso boasted, “I thought about winning the championship after winning 3-0 in the home game against Bayern Munich (in the last 21 rounds),” and added, “I used last season’s experience as a foundation and won the title with consistent performance throughout this season.” I felt embarrassed.

Leverkusen’s victory on this day ended the 11-year long reign of Bayern Munich, the ‘powerhouse in Germany’.

Coach Alonso believed that stopping Munich’s 12-game losing streak would improve the Bundesliga.

Coach Alonso predicted, “It would be healthy for the Bundesliga and German football if another club (besides Munich) wins,” and added, “It is a great joy that the winning team is us.” 온라인 슬롯
