Xabi Alonso has long-since been linked with the managerial hotseat at Anfield.
With Jurgen Klopp now announcing his intention to step down at the end of the season, many feel Alonso is the ideal candidate.
Speaking to Guillem Balague back in 2018, former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso stated his wish to one day replace Jurgen Klopp at the Reds as their manager.
Of course, lots can change in five years, with Alonso now finding a lot of success with his current club.
There’s no guarantee that the Spanish manager would be able to translate his work from Germany to Anfield.
In the below clip, the Spaniard says that his ‘link, my commitment, my passion with Liverpool is there’ and ends off saying ‘you know, why not [manage Liverpool]’
