Rafa Benitez has advised Xabi Alonso against hastily making the next career move and emphasized the importance of joining a top-tier team only when he feels fully prepared. Alonso, who thrived under Benitez at Liverpool, has garnered attention for his coaching success at Bayer Leverkusen and is a prime target for both Liverpool and Bayern Munich in their search for a manager for the 2024/25 season.

Despite the intense interest in Alonso’s managerial services, there are indications that he might choose to stay with Leverkusen for at least another season. Benitez acknowledged that such a decision could be a wise move early in Alonso’s coaching career.

While recognizing Alonso’s potential to be a successful manager, Benitez cautioned that the pressure in top-tier teams, where expectations are high, could be challenging. He pointed out the scrutiny managers face, especially with the influence of social media and press coverage, and emphasized the difficulty of maintaining success over an extended period.

Benitez stated, “He can go to any top side now, but they will be expecting to win the title. And if you finish second, maybe it’s a great season but people will say, ‘Oh, he’s failed.'”

Furthermore, Benitez highlighted the impact of social media and press coverage on young coaches, making it essential for them to carefully consider their career moves.

Regarding Liverpool’s perspective, it is reported that they are not overly concerned about Bayern’s interest in Alonso. The club is taking a measured approach, prioritizing the appointment of a new sporting director first, with plans to conclude the search in March. Subsequently, the input from the sporting director will guide the pursuit of a new manager for Liverpool.
