Xabi Alonso: Liverpool are a legendary club

Bayern Munich midfielder is set for extraordinary statistical season and the Spaniard could not be happier as his "career has a nice script to it".

Xabi Alonso has been in a pensive mood of late.

The midfield maestro reflected on his career to date… one which has seen him compete at Anfield, the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the Allianz Arena while picking up one league trophy, two Champions League titles and the World Cup, with Spain.

Renowned for his ability to control matches from the heart of midfield, Alonso's skill-level shows no signs of waning even at 32-years-old, he has been responsible for 122 passes per game on average in his Bundesliga career to date - a ratio that equates to one pass for every 35 seconds he is on the field.

It is highly probable Alonso will add to the honours he accumulated at Liverpool and Real Madrid at Bayern Munich.

He said in an interview with AS: "[Pep Guardiola] truly wanted me, which was important. But I was also attracted by the possibility of having a different experience at Bayern Munich.

He continued: "I left Real Sociedad for a legendary club, Liverpool, then I went to one of the all-time greats in Real Madrid and now I’m at another top club outside Spain.

"My career has a nice script to it," he concluded.
