The longest running transfer saga of the season finally saw its fate and Alonso finally sealed his dream move to Madrid. Though majority of anfield faithfuls were reluctant to admit that but the deal was always on the card ever since the season ended.Benitez was subjected to much of he criticism in this regard due to his mad chase of Gareth Barry Last transfer season and a probable row with Alonso.Though it can also be interpreted as a very good business on Liverpool’s part.Once Aquilani’s deal is sealed subject to a tough medical Rafa is left with enough resources to add more flare to his attacking options,while name of David Villa or David Silva is being spurred on,Alonso’s transfer is being touted as a big big loss for our title chase but this can prove as a blessing in disguise.With addition of Aquilani,Glenjohnson and a probable signing from Valencia,the squad looks far strong as ever to compete with the rest of the big four.It seems quite imminent that Benitez will stick to 4-2-3-1 formation that worked so well last season which means signing of a top class striker might be opted out.
I want to request all Liverpool fans all over the world to react positive right from the first day of the season.Let us wish Xabi Alonso luck and all questions regarding his transfer can be answered as “ Alonso was a brilliant servant for Liverpool.He had every right to Follow his career ambitions and is now a part of Great Liverpool History.”
You Will Never Walk Alone!!!
