Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso pleased with Boniface's performance

Posted : 22 May 2024

Bayer Leverkusen's manager, Xabi Alonso, has addressed concerns about Super Eagles forward Victor Boniface's limited playing time, stating there are no issues from his side.

Boniface suffered an adductor muscle injury just before his debut at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, leading to surgery in January.

After a three-month absence, Boniface returned for Leverkusen's German Cup semi-final against Fortuna Düsseldorf.

However, since his return, he has started only three of Leverkusen's 12 games, prompting questions about his role ahead of the UEFA Europa League final against Atalanta BC.

Nigerian journalist Oma Akatugba queried Alonso about Boniface's playing time, to which the Spanish coach praised the forward's determination to fight for his spot.

Alonso emphasized the value of players showcasing character and determination, expressing satisfaction with Boniface's contributions.

He assured that Leverkusen appreciates Boniface's efforts and is supportive of his progress, urging Nigerian fans to know they are pleased with him.

Recently, Boniface was recognized with the Bundesliga Rookie of the Season award, underscoring his impactful performances with 13 goals and three assists in the Bundesliga, alongside consecutive monthly awards from August to December 2023.
