Spanish football legend, Xabi Alonso has agreed on a deal to become the new coach of Borussia Mönchengladbach in June 2021.
The ex Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid midfielder, now 39, is currently in charge of Real Sociedad’s Team B but will return to Germany in June to take the top job at Mönchengladbach.
Marco Rose who will be replaced by Alonso, last month signed a deal to become Borussia Dortmund’s manager at the end of the season after activating a clause in his current contract.
Alonso is one of the most celebrated players in the world of football. He won three Bundesliga trophies with Bayern and won the Champions League with Liverpool and Real Madrid. He also won a World Cup and two European Championship titles with the Spain national team.
