"What the hell is going on?" - Questions about the Liverpool hero Xabi Alonso is called out and makes a scathing statement about the Champions League

Xabi Alonso’s choice to ignore Liverpool has left former Liverpool striker Michael Owen speechless, as he has acknowledged.

In his decision to remain at Bayer Leverkusen and eliminate himself from consideration for the position of Jurgen Klopp’s successor, Xabi Alonso is, in the opinion of Michael Owen, a former striker for Liverpool, making a mistake.

Because the Spaniard believes that he still has more to do with the club in the Bundesliga and the Champions League in 2024/25, he made the official announcement on Friday that he would be staying at the German club.

Owen provided the following statement to Betideas.com: “With all due respect, it’s incredible what Leverkusen are doing at the moment, but they are not going to win the Champions League or be one of Europe’s elite.”

With that being said, he continued, “The thing is that in life, and certainly in football, you can have all these best-made plans, and then the unexpected comes through.” “When I look back at my career, I imagined that I would play for anybody I wanted to play for. Then, all of a sudden, you are offered something else, and you start to fear that it might never happen again.

I knew that I would never be asked to play for Real Madrid again, so I was at a loss for what to do when they asked me to do so.

Both Owen and Alonso made the move from Liverpool to Real Madrid, yet their respective legacies at Anfield continue to be distinct from one another. Owen caused his own reputation to suffer when he signed with Manchester United in 2009, the same summer that Alonso moved to Madrid.

“It’s alright thinking about taking it step by step and building and maybe waiting on his move to Liverpool,” the former England striker said, adding, “I’m sure Steven Gerrard thought that when he was at Rangers.” Alonso’s route is similar to that of his ex-midfield partner on the other side of the field.

Things did not go as smoothly as expected, and all of a sudden, he is not really in the hunt for the Liverpool job. People hoped that Aston Villa could be a stepping stone, but things did not go as well.

Alonso, on the other hand, is currently in a position to lead Leverkusen to their very first Bundesliga title, with a 13-point lead. He will also be in charge of the club when they make their arrival in the Champions League the following season. After 11 months in charge of Aston Villa, Gerrard was fired in 2022 due to the difficulties he had there. As a result, he is no longer a candidate to succeed Klopp as manager of the club.

“It’s okay to plot a perfect path, but you know what, life is never perfect, and if the opportunity present itself to manage Liverpool, how the hell do you say no given his affinity with the club?” Owen added. “It’s okay to plot a perfect path.”
