“ALONSO STAY” is the banner that greeted Xabi Alonso in August 2008 during a pre-season game against Lazio. This was at the peek of the speculation that Alonso was going to leave Liverpool after Rafa Benitez decided to sell him when we the fans did not want him to leave.
Up until today, many Liverpool fans have never wanted Alonso to leave Liverpool and many still call for him to come back especially via Twitter. But Alonso is now a Real Madrid player and he is enjoying life in Madrid but he is still open to a return to Liverpool one day.
In a world exclusive interview – which premiered on LFC TV on Sunday night – the Spanish midfielder spoke about the chances of him returning to Liverpool one day. When asked if there is any chance of him wearing the famous Liverpool shirt again, 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.”
