All this summer Liverpool’s defensive midfielder Xabi Alonso has been linked with a move away from Anfield, but somehow no concrete deals were made and so the Spain international, for better or for worse, has decided to stick on at Anfield.
But Alonso is looking forward to a fruitful and successful relationship with Liverpool this season and has dismissed any notion of being unsettled at the club. Although he is understandably the second choice defensive midfielder at Anfield after Javier Mascherano, Alonso emphasizes that he is committed to winning silverware with Liverpool this season.
“I am totally focused on Liverpool now. I have always really appreciated the support of Liverpool fans; they are really special. They know when a player is committed to the club and I always try to give 100 per cent.”
Frankly, Alonso’s stay at Anfield is going to be a boon for the Reds.
