Alonso assumed leadership of Leverkusen in October 2022, heralding a new era in German football. Under his strategic guidance, Leverkusen embarked on an extraordinary unbeaten streak, setting a Bundesliga record with 29 consecutive games without defeat, comprising 25 wins and four draws, accumulating an impressive 79 points.

The pivotal moment arrived with a resounding 5-0 victory over SV Werder Bremen, securing the Bundesliga title with five matches to spare. This victory not only marks Leverkusen’s first championship since 1993 but also terminates Bayern Munich’s decade-long stronghold over German football.

Upon Alonso’s arrival, Leverkusen underwent a remarkable transformation from a struggling team to formidable contenders. Despite a challenging start, the Spanish tactician instilled confidence and a winning mentality, propelling Leverkusen to a sixth-place finish last season, setting the stage for their championship-winning campaign.

This season, Leverkusen embarked on a mission to dethrone Bayern Munich, reinforcing their squad with notable signings such as prolific striker Harry Kane. Under Alonso’s leadership, Leverkusen emphasized collective teamwork over individual brilliance, with players like Florian Wirtz and Victor Boniface emerging as top scorers, each netting 11 goals.

With a commanding 16-point lead over Bayern Munich and an unbeaten streak extending to an astonishing 43 games across all competitions, Leverkusen’s triumph is a testament to their consistent performance and strategic approach. As they continue their journey in the German Cup final and Europa League quarter-finals, Leverkusen‘s remarkable season is far from over, promising more excitement and success ahead.
