Xabi Alonso going to Real Madrid

It's really kind of a sad news for a Liverpool fan. Alonso's role was undeniably crucial for the success of Liverpool over the past years. Especially the last year. It was Alonso and his ability to connect the players from the deep, that helped Liverpool get to the 2nd place in premier league, even in the absence of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres.

But today, its kind of official that he will be sold to the Real Madrid for around a petty £30 Million. I think a player is not bigger than the club and its legacy. But what I know, its going to be a really challenge to fill in the gap, he is going to leave.

I wish him all the best for his career. He is one non-English player, whose departure from Liverpool will leave the fans sad. He has had his bad patches. But he definitely is a gem now. I still remember, that people used to refer Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso as the best midfield pair in Europe.

Now we have to bring in Aquilani or Steven Defour.
