“They have regained their confidence and despite being knocked out of the Europa League their form in the Premier League has improved a lot,” Alonso told The Times.

“They can rebuild a competitive team, especially as it looks like there is now stability at the club again.

“Now they have to think about the sport side and create a plan for the following years.

“I am still a Liverpool fan and will be forever, absolutely,” he added.

“The things that I have lived and the experiences I had during those five years are deep in my heart.

“The passion and respect I had for the club and its supporters are still the same.

“Hopefully I can transmit to my son what Liverpool Football Club means and how special it is, as he was born in the city and he will visit it in the future.”
