Xabi Alonso will take over as boss of Borussia Mönchengladbach this summer, according to The Guardian.
Alonso will return to Germany in June to take over as head coach of Mönchengladbach.
Their current coach Marco Rose agreed on a deal last month, after triggering a clause in his new contract.
He is to become Borussia Dortmund boss at the end of the season.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern’s chairman, told Kicker in 2019: “I think we have to make an effort to bring Xabi Alonso back to Bayern at some point. He is the best central midfielder we’ve had in recent years. He wasn’t the quickest, but he was the best strategy and the most intelligent I’ve ever seen in our midfield. He was a marvellous player, who speaks four languages and German fluently. He was a real personality. I’d really like him to return to Bayern one day, he’s a true gentleman.”
The former Liverpool, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid midfielder is currently in charge of Real Sociedad’s B side.
