Xabi Alonso is retiring at the end of the season.
And many are suggesting he might just be the best holding midfielder of the past decade.
The Spaniard currently plays for Bayern Munich, but has won Champions Leagues with ourselves and Real Madrid, Bundesliga titles with the Germans and the World Cup and two European Championships with his country…
One of the silkiest midfielders ever to grace Anfield, that’s for certain. He’ll be sorely, sorely missed.

What a career for Xabi Alonso, who will retire at the end of the season. Always a difference maker when on the field, retiring on top. #LFC

Xabi Alonso. Legend. Spun every league he's played in. Made Madrid tick while he was there. Went to Bayern and made them bin their legend.
