“My favourite memory off the pitch is when Stevie (Gerrard) and I got locked in the changing room for a few hours. It was funny but I can’t say any more than that.” — Xabi Alonso on his time at Liverpool FC
yeah we know why you can’t say any more than that xabi, we know
Gerrard: “Xabi Alonso is the best midfielder I have played with. I miss playing with him.” :(
Alberto Moreno to Marca: “Gerrard is a true Captain. He fights for the team with all he’s got and he always puts Liverpool ahead of himself. […] For someone like me, who’s just getting started in football, it’s a privilege to play with a footballer like him.” Also, Uncle Jamie doesn’t even go here anymore, but he’s the shit! Javi, hold this up…
“Jordan epitomises everything a captain is. He leads by example, never gives up and works just as hard without the ball as with it.
We are good mates on and off the pitch and I would love nothing better than passing over the armband to him when I call it a day here, not just because he’s a great player but also a top lad. He comes from a great family, a similar family to mine, so it’ll be a very proud day when I hand it over.”
