It seems that we will be witnessing a game of musical chairs next summer, and this time it revolves around the coaches. The orchestration began with the announcements of German Jurgen Klopp bidding farewell to Liverpool and Xavi Hernandez parting ways with Barcelona at the end of the season. These revelations ignited speculations about their potential successors, with several candidates already being linked to various teams.
Remarkably, Germany seems to be the epicenter of this coaching shuffle. Following Klopp’s departure, the spotlight immediately turned to former Spanish “Reds” player Xabi Alonso as the possible heir. Alonso, who is currently steering Bayer Leverkusen to the top of the German League undefeated, is having an outstanding season.
However, the English league may not be the only option for Alonso, as Real Madrid has him on their radar. They see him as the ideal successor to the current Italian coach, Carlo Ancelotti.
While a change is not imminent for Real Madrid, their arch-rivals Barcelona are gearing up for an inevitable transformation. Xavi’s departure led to widespread speculation, with Bayern Munich’s German coach, Thomas Tuchel, emerging as a favorite to take the lead in the summer.
The abundance of rumors prompted Bayern to issue an official statement, clarifying Tuchel’s remarks that sparked speculation about him potentially leading Barcelona. Tuchel’s said in a recent statement: “The Spanish League will definitely be an option for the future, as working outside Germany is a constant attraction for me in my coaching career.”.
He added: “Spain always has an exceptional tournament that attracts stars as well as coaches. Participating in it is an experience full of passion, and based on my experience working with the Spaniards, they are characterized by a tremendous amount of self-confidence.”
In this regard, Bayern explained in a statement: “The fans asked Thomas Tuchel about his coaching career and his previous experiences outside Germany with Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea, and it is natural for him to provide information about this matter during the discussion.”
Bayern’s statement emphasized that Tuchel only answered general questions about Spain’s football landscape and never discussed Xavi Hernandez or the succession plan, dismissing the claims as untrue.
They concluded: “We will no longer accept such untrue statements directed against our coach, which always come from the same source.”
The Spanish coach, Mikel Arteta, the coach of Arsenal, revealed the truth about the gossip revolving around negotiations with the Barcelona administration to take over the technical leadership of the “La Blaugrana” starting next season.
Arteta commented during a press conference about the existence of negotiations with Barcelona, saying, “Completely false news.” He added, “I don’t know where this news comes from; it’s not true at all.”
He noted, “I was really upset about that, and I could not believe what was being said. There is no source for these rumors and nothing is true.”
Arteta has a contract with the Gunners until the summer of 2025. Note that the London team occupies third place in the league with 43 points, 5 points behind the leaders, Liverpool.
