LIVERPOOL legend Xabi Alonso is set to be appointed the new manager of Borussia Monchengladbach at the end of the season.
The ex-Real Madrid and Bayern Munich midfielder has impressed since taking over at Real Sociedad B in 2019.
And now according to Bild he is expected to make the biggest move of his coaching career so far when he becomes the boss of Bundesliga side Monchengladbach.
The huge step up comes just three years after he began his managerial journey when he took charge of Real Madrid’s youth team.
Since becoming Real Sociedad B manager in July 2019, Alonso has won 23 of his 47 games in charge, drawing 12 and losing 12.
His contract expires this summer and he is expected to part ways with the Spanish outfit to join the German top flight side.
Meanwhile, Monchengladbach currently sit tenth in the Bundesliga table after an horrific drop off in form.
Prior to their 3-0 win over Schalke at the weekend, Marco Rose’s side had not won in nine games in all competitions.
That abysmal run included seven defeats on the bounce.
Monchengladbach were also comfortably knocked out of the Champions League in the round of 16 by Manchester City.
