How can you not love Xabi Alonso?
Our former midfielder is the epitome of class on and off the pitch and is one of the iconic players of his generation, having won La Liga, the Bundesliga, the Champions League, the World Cup and the European Championships.
Last night though, he was at the National Football Hall of Fame awards ceremony to celebrate a former team-mate: Steven Gerrard – who was being inducted.
Good fun was seemingly had by all, with Xabi making sure to wind up infamous windup merchant Jamie Carragher!
‘Am I a legend?’ our ex-centre-back asked…
‘No, you’re a pundit!’ said the Spaniard!
