Former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso has explained how the 2005 Champions League final between AC Milan and the Reds follows him wherever he goes.
The Spaniard told Jamie Carragher – during a watch-a-long of the classic game, via LFC TV – that the “miracle” of Istanbul is well-remembered outside of Liverpool.
Alonso left the Reds in 2009 for Real Madrid, where he won a second Champions League title in 2014, before finishing his career with Bayern Munich in 2017.
The Spaniard is regarded by many as a Liverpool legend for his world-class ability and prominent role in our 2005 Turkish triumph.
