Former Chelsea star slams Alonso for turning down Liverpool job



Former England and Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole in a recent statememt claimed Xabi Alonso made a “terrible decision” by turning down Liverpool and Bayern Munich offers to stay at Bayer Leverkusen.

Alonso, who was recently named as a top candidate to replace Jurgen Klopp at Anfield, confirmed on Friday that he wants to remain at his current club.

The Spaniard wants to continue his job at Leverkusen, who are poised for a potential Champions League campaign and Bundesliga title defence next season.

However, Cole, in an interview with TNT Sports, said: “I think it’s a terrible decision. As managers, your stock goes up and down so quickly; he’s the hottest property in world football management right now. I think he should’ve made the move this summer.

“In a year’s time, it could be completely different; keeping this team together is going to be tough enough because they’ve got some fantastic players and all the giants in Europe are going to be looking at them.”
