Xabi Alonso produced a great gesture following Bayer Leverkusen’s massive win over Bayern Munich on Saturday.
Leverkusen moved five points clear of second-placed Bayern following their 3-0 victory at the BayArena.
Alonso’s side remain unbeaten in the Bundesliga, having won 17 of their 21 league fixtures this season.
Josip Stanisic opened the scoring in the 18th minute as he scored against his parent club following his loan transfer last summer.
Alex Grimaldo made it 2-0 in the 50th minute as he smashed home a terrific strike inside the box.
Jeremie Frimpong added a third in stoppage time when he scored into an empty net after Manuel Neuer went up for a corner-kick.
Alonso continues to work his managerial magic and he impressed fans with what he did after the final whistle.
In a classy gesture, the Spaniard didn’t want to get honoured by the fans in attendance before getting his entire backroom staff on the pitch.
