Liverpool

Proof this ex-Liverpool star is simply the coolest footballer in the world

Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking nostalgically over to the bar as our landlord shows them this viral image of Xabi Alonso.

As one of our punters notes, not only is the midfielder one of the classiest players on the field, he isn’t too shabby off it as well and we have to say, after looking at these pictures, we think he could well be one of the classiest footballers ever.

He is also pretty handy on the field and letting him leave for the chance to land Gareth Barry has to be one of the worst things Rafa Benitez has done in his career – and all Liverpool fans know it!

Liverpool fans. Have a look at this.
