Zé Roberto Believes Bayer Leverkusen Can Win the Triple: A Look at Their Championship Potential

Zé Roberto believes Bayer Leverkusen can win the triple: “And the wonderful thing about it is that it has no aftertaste at all,” says the Brazilian, who only came second three times with Bayer in 2002, in the kicker interview (Tuesday edition).

What the Brazilian, who also played for Bayern Munich and Hamburger SV in the Bundesliga, emphasizes: “This team showed impressive football and consistently showed itself to be, I would describe it, a flying team.” The fact that some defeats were avoided with goals in stoppage time is an expression of “skill and mental strength.” You used to see that often at Bayern Munich. “But now is Bayer Leverkusen’s time.”

Bayer can round off the season in the two finals of the Europa League and the DFB Cup that are coming up this week. “I’m predicting three crowns for Leverkusen.” Even if, for example in the game in Berlin, Kaiserslautern “is an opponent that you might sympathize with as an underdog, a club that is itself a legend.”

“Smart signings”

With a view to the strength of the new German champions, the former national player emphasizes not only the work of coach Xabi Alonso but also the management, saying that the club has made “smart new signings”. But if the club wants to attack permanently in the Champions League, the squad still needs to be strengthened.

Young star Florian Wirtz is “the best player of the season” for 49-year-old Zé Roberto, who ended his active career in 2017. When asked about his world-class qualities, the Brazilian explains: “He has the potential to reach this level if he develops his game and refines his skills.”

But the 21-year-old is not the only key player for the new champions. You can read about the names Zé Roberto calls and how he evaluates Xabi Alonso’s work in detail on Tuesday in kicker – or from Monday evening in the eMagazine.
