In an interview taken yesterday, Xabi Alonso has said that he misses his time with Liverpool. Don’t know why would he make such a statement right now and to be honest, the media is making a meal out of it but then again, what else do they do.
It is well known fact that players do miss their former clubs and the atmosphere that is present there. And, it is the norm now a days that no player commits to a club whole heartedly. Most of the football players now a days are basically professionals.
In other words, they are workers. They play and get paid. The rest does not matter for them. Long gone are the days when we used to have players like Raul, Maldini or Pele. Clubs have to be really careful with their players now a days. Imagine Perez had a bust up with Ronaldo and Mourinho. Imagine that they leave together for someotherclub.
Iamsure the bookies would put Real Madrid second to last to win anything next season. That is why I do not think we can complain of Alonso’s interview here. He did not mean in any way that he wants to go back to Liverpool and leave Real Madrid.
He was giving his interview to Liverpool tv or something, so it is understandable that he would want to make a good and loyal impression on his former club’s fans. Obviously, he did not want to leave Liverpooljustlikethat.AsIrecall,he
