Farewell, Xabi Alonso, you self-confessed snail

Good work in the transfer window by Rafa Benitez, if you believe Xabi Alonso. According to this interview he gave on the Liverpool squad last season, the Reds have managed to offload their worst trainer and their slowest player so far this summer.

  • Joe

    30 million for a 28 year old? Excellent piece of business by Liverpool. This brings Madrid’s tally to somewhere around 220million this summer. They do know they can only put 11 on the pitch at once?

  • Keith

    No-one knows what the transfer fee is, probably not as much as Liverpool would have liked to sell him for.
