Bayer Leverkusen’s head coach, Xabi Alonso, expressed his joy at the return of Nigerian striker Victor Boniface after a prolonged absence due to injury. Boniface made his comeback during the German Cup semi-finals clash against Fortuna Düsseldorf on Wednesday, April 3, 2024.

“It was special for him after 3 months of absence. He worked hard to get back on the field. He wanted to enjoy it with the players.

We needed him back,” stated Xabi Alonso in an interview with the club’s official website.

Entering the game in the 66th minute as a substitute for Patrick Schick, Boniface’s return was warmly welcomed by fans and teammates alike.

His presence on the pitch provided a boost to Bayer Leverkusen, who were eager to have their top scorer back in action.
