Alonso Heading Back To Anfield?

By on June 8, 2011

Will we be seeing former star Xabi Alonso in the Liverpool jersey again? Well it is possible now as the current Real Madrid midfielder has stated that he refuses to rule out a return to Liverpool in the future.

Xabi Alonso was forced out of the Liverpool squad by former manager Rafa Benitez back in 2009. Benitez wanted to offload Alonso to raise funds as his major target at that time was Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry (now at Manchester City).

Despite enjoying his life now at Real Madrid, the 29-year-old is open to the possibility of one day returning to the club he once won the prestigious UEFA Champions League with.

When asked about a possible return to Anfield, Alonso said :

Why not? I think that in football so many things change, and why not? I have my red passion and if circumstances arrived then why not?

At the moment I don’t know what is going to happen, but it could be a possibility. Never say never.

Alonso has always described Liverpool as one of very top clubs in his heart, and there is no doubt at all that he’s had very special moments at Anfield.

Liverpool has been and always will be very special. It is in my heart because I have lived very intense things there.

I miss lots of things. I miss the lads, I miss the atmosphere at Melwood – it was a great place to work, and the scenario of Anfield is unbeatable.

The special nights I have been privileged enough to live, those will be in my memory forever and they are difficult to compare anywhere in the world.

    Alonso was just expressing appreciation of the time he had at Anfield, and being diplomatic when asked the inevitable question about a possible return. It will never happen imho.

    If only all ex players were as good with their words once they’ve left.
