Sport: “Xabi Alonso rules the Bundesliga with Leverkusen. A year and a half to bury 119 years of history. A year and a half to take a broken, identityless and league-worn team to a dimension it had only dreamed of in its wildest dreams. A year and a half to tell all of Germany that there is something more in the Bundesliga than Bayern.”

Great Britain

The Guardian: “Especially because of the corporate support from Bayer, the Leverkusen team hardly attracts much sympathy from the German football audience. The plastic label continues to haunt her. So perhaps Alonso’s team’s greatest achievement this season was creating something so undeniably human. (…) A new reality took shape, a separation between past torments and present fantasies, between the Leverkusen that exists now and the Leverkusen that will never exist again.

Independent: Bayer Leverkusen wins the championship and ends Bayern Munich’s streak after eleven titles. Leverkusen was bottom in the second half of the table when Xabi Alonso took over the team in October 2022. The Spaniard led the club to a historic title in his first full season as coach (of a professional team).”

The Sun: “Fans rushed to celebrate before the final whistle as Bayern Leverkusen sealed their first ever Bundesliga title with a 5-0 win over Werder Bremen. Incredibly, Xabi Alonso’s men ended Bayern Munich’s 12-year grip on the crown without losing a single game in the entire Bundesliga season.”


Daily indicator: “The Bundesliga has rarely seen a better champion. Leverkusen says goodbye to Vizekusen with a 5-0 win against Bremen and wants to gain financial muscle so that this title doesn’t remain a one-off. (…) The club has freed the league from the yoke of FC Bayern Munich, from the crippling superiority of an FCB that had recently won the title eleven times in a row.”

At 7:19 p.m. all dams finally break in the BayArena: Bayer Leverkusen beats Werder Bremen 5-0 and are crowned German champions. For Leverkusen it is the first Bundesliga title in the club’s history. The joy of the team, the staff and the fans? Indescribable! Thousands storm the pitch before the final whistle and cheer with their heroes.”


The Team: “Bayer Leverkusen didn’t tremble. Unbeaten in all competitions since the start of the season (43 games), Xabi Alonso’s team converted their first match point on Sunday against Werder Bremen (5-0) and made history with their first championship title in Germany. Winning the championship after eleven years of Bavarian hegemony is one thing. It’s another to crown yourself five match days before the end. An XXL cable that commands respect.”

Corriere della Sera: “Bayer is celebrating. One letter changes, but that changes the world. The “Neverkusen”, so called because they have never won anything significant in their history (just two cups in 120 years), defeated Werder Bremen 5-0 and celebrated in front of their fans thanks to goals from Boniface, Xhaka and Wirtz (hat trick).”
