As reported by HLN, the club witches is looking for a new manager for next season with the aim of replacing Alfred Schreuder, who will become Ajax’s manager for next season after Erik Ten Hag’s departure to Manchester United was confirmed. And one of the names that is sounding with more force is that of Xabi Alonso.
The Spanish coach, who currently works at Real Sociedad B, is Brugge’s first choice for next season, where they will seek to win the Belgian first division again and transcend in the UEFA Champions League.
Xabi Alonso, target of Club Bruges to replace Alfred Schreuder
Xabi Alonso, who joined the B team of the Basque team in the summer of 2019, has a record of 10 wins, 10 draws and 19 losses in LaLiga2 this season, to which he managed to get promoted last season. It was an option that Florentino Pérez handled to replace Carlo Ancelotti for the next season, taking into account that he worked at the time in the lower categories of the merengue team.
The option of directing the best team in Belgium and training in the UEFA Champions League is a variant that the young Spanish coach really likes. His work in the Basque team is sensational, so he is ready to make the leap to a club with more important demands and that has the goal of winning important titles. But he first wants to save Real Sociedad B from relegation to the third division, which seems complicated at the moment.
