Peter Crouch has revealed a humorous story from his Liverpool days which involves a cheeky stunt from midfielder Xabi Alonso.
The Spaniard is said to have bought one of his team-mates a canary as a gift, because nobody had seen him “with a bird”.
It’s obviously just a joke between team-mates, and shouldn’t be taken out of the context it’s in, but this has to be one of my favourite behind-closed-doors stories from the Rafael Benitez era!
Take a watch of the video below (via BT Sport):
