'Once a red' - Former Liverpool heroes Alonso and Reina post picture watching Southampton win

Xabi Alonso and Pepe Reina watched the game from Munich.

Liverpool defeated Southampton earlier today in a 2-0 win at St Mary's that certainly had its controversial moments. Nonetheless, come the end of the game The Saints did not do enough to win the game but were certainly hardly done by with the refereeing of Kevin Friend.

Of course Liverpool fans were nonplussed. They were just pleased to have three points on the board and especially as it came against a fellow Champions League chasing outfit.

While Liverpool fans in the UK took in the game, an interesting pair of Liverpool fans took the game in.

Pepe Reina and Xabi Alonso are now team-mates at Bayern Munich, but both also remain heroes at Liverpool.

Reina posted this picture on Instagram earlier today highlighting the fact that the two friends were watching the tie on television in Germany.
