Welcome back to Anfield, this is how Xabi Alonso played for Liverpool

While everyone at Anfield was satisfied with Jürgen Klopp's commitment in each of the instructions he gave, the Leverkusen fans in Germany were satisfied with the good soccer that Alonso has been able to shape in his players, serving as an example a couple of harmless Bayern Munich plays that surprisingly were countered by an offensive position that became offensive when they regained the ball.

At the end of the day, this good understanding of attack and defense is what led the Leverkusen team to continue reigning at the top of the competition, but now with a bigger advantage over the Bavarian team, generating high expectations that Xabi Alonso could arrive at the Reds as the brand new champion of a club which is not very common to see him leading the German competition in the way he is doing today.

The great match planning that Xabi had for this game only shows the great preparation that this coach has today for all types of confrontation, being his soccer very dynamic, decisive, forceful and very decisive in the moments when he is most needed, perfectly fulfilling the profile that is sought in a Liverpool that today gets the same benefits with Jürgen Klopp.

Liverpool still need to think about the present with Klopp

Even though the departure of Jürgen Klopp will be inevitable during the summer, the whole Liverpool environment must be aware that their present is still linked to this coach who fights to win all the titles at his disposal, not being able to fall into those thoughts where they see Xabi in charge of the club, and the fans and players must be focused on the current objectives, not being a priority at the moment to analyze all the good things that Alonso does with Leverkusen.
