Alonso Urges Leverkusen to Push Forward Despite Adversity in the ‘Neverlusen’ Season

The 2023-24 Bundesliga season ended with Bayer Leverkusen making history by becoming the first team to win the league without losing a single game.

After years of criticism, Leverkusen, also known as ‘Neverkusen,’ finally achieved a major title, going undefeated throughout the season and securing the victory in their final match against Augsburg.

This feat puts Leverkusen in a rare category alongside only Arsenal and Juventus, who achieved an invincible season in the past two decades across the top European leagues.

In celebration, the club nicknamed themselves ‘Bayer 04 Neverlusen’ on social media, marking a significant moment for European football, as highlighted by Xabi Alonso during a press conference.

Reflecting on the season, Alonso emphasized the importance of valuing the achievement, with an unbeaten run, 90 points, and the first-ever Bundesliga title as major accomplishments for the club.

With an all-time unbeaten record of 51 matches in European competitions, Leverkusen is now aiming for a treble by competing in the Europa League final against Atalanta and the German Cup final against Kaiserslautern.

While the team basks in the glory of their historic season, Alonso looks ahead to upcoming challenges, emphasizing the unique opportunity to further solidify their place in Bundesliga history.
