The Real Madrid man has revealed that he keeps a close eye on his old employers and is ‘really excited’ about the side’s success.
With Brendan Rodgers’ men looking on course for a momentous Premier League title, the Real Madrid and Spain midfielder has been speaking out about his former employers.
The 32-year-old admits that he still keeps a close eye on the Anfield side and is watching their domestic run-in closely.
“I’m really excited. It’s thrilling what’s happening in the city right now. What they are doing at the moment is so admirable, the players, the coaches.
“Eleven wins in a row is a massive achievement, and they are so close to winning the league for the first time in 24 years.
“So I’m really looking forward to it and happy for the ones I know like Stevie [Gerrard] and Lucas [Leiva], the ones I played with there.”
Liverpool face Chelsea at Anfield this Sunday, with another win all-but securing their potential first-place finish.
Alonso spent five years in England and there were rumblings that he could have potentially returned to Liverpool before he signed a new contract in Madrid at the end of last year.
