Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso has extended his contract by two years to 2026, the Bundesliga club announced on Friday.

VerseSports gathered that the former Real Madrid, Liverpool and Bayern Munich player took over Leverkusen in the relegation places in October and took them to a sixth-place finish, alongside a run to the Europa League semi-finals.

Alonso’s performance at Leverkusen led to speculation he may be tempted away from the club to one of Europe’s bigger sides, but the new deal will keep him at the BayArena for the next three seasons.

“I see last season positively. But I want more, just like the club,” he continued.

“We are continuing to work on this with determination.”

Sporting Director Simon Rolfes said the extension is “an expression of great appreciation and mutual trust” between the club and manager.
