Xabi Alonso gets closer to Anfield as Liverpool submit an official request

According to caughtoffside, with 11 games remaining in the current Bundesliga season, Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen side still leads the German top division by eight points over second-placed Bayern Munich. Leverkusen are undefeated, having won 19 and drawn four of their 23 games thus far.

If the Spaniard can keep his squad focused on the task at hand for the next several months, this incredible season might end with Leverkusen’s first title. No small task, especially given that Bayern Munich has won the previous 11 titles in a row and was tipped to win a twelve before the 2023/24 season began.
