Xabi Alonso is a central midfielder currently playing for Liverpool in the Barclays Premiership in England. He is from Spain, beginning his career at Real Sociedad. He has also been on loan at SD Eibar when he was 20. In August 2004, Rafael Benitez's Liverpool signed Alonso for £10.5 million. In his first season at Anfield, he helped the side win the UEFA Champions League.

The Spainish maestro is known as a great passer of the ball, often the playmaker in the Liverpool team. Alonso had his best ever season in a Red shirt, in the 08-09 season, many people believing he was Liverpool's best performer of the season. However for the ups, there has also been downs, Xabi Alonso has had transfer speculation, on whether he is being sold. Many people believe he will make way for Gareth Barry, but wherever Alonso goes he is worldwide renowed for his marvellous impact in the middle of the field.
