There is no doubting that Xabi Alonso is a Liverpool legend.
Alonso played a key role in that Champions League win, especially in the final against AC Milan in Istanbul. The Reds had gone in at half-time 3-0 down, but managed to pull it back to 3-2 before winning a penalty.
It was the Spaniard who stepped up to take it, and although he missed he managed to score the rebound and made it 3-3, giving the Reds the platform to then go on and win the trophy on penalties.
October 16th 2019 marked the 15-year anniversary since Alonso scored his first-ever goal for Liverpool, which was a superb free-kick against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
The club’s official Twitter account posted a clip of the strike, which led to several fans fondly remembering the midfielders time at the club…
