Picture this. An immaculately dressed Xabi Alonso strolls out of the Anfield tunnel, sunglasses wrapped around his perfectly shaped face, to the rapturous applause of 54,000 supporters.
The Kop goes wild for the new manager of Liverpool Football Club. Alonso waves to those who once chanted his name for five years and he thumps Manchester United 6-0 on his home debut.
After his retirement last year, the silky Spaniard confirmed that he would into management once his playing days were over.
Months later, Alonso has revealed his dream of one day managing his former side.
In an interview with Sky Sports, Alonso admitted his dream is to prove himself in management and then become Liverpool manager.
"Yes for sure, I have dreamt of that, but first I have to prove myself and prepare. If I decide somewhere along the way to take my chances as a manager, my link, my commitment, my passion with Liverpool is there.
"Why not? We will see if we can cross paths in our ways."
Alonso does think, however, that former teammate and friend Steven Gerrard will take over managerial responsibilities before him.
"I think that Stevie will go earlier than me for sure, it's the natural way. Steve is already there so it's going to be sooner rather than later I guess." he said.
In 21 games in charge, Gerrard has tasted defeat just once, and his young Reds are currently top of the Under 18 Premier League table, as well as finishing as group winners in their UEFA Youth League group.

It's certainly been a been a very promising start to Gerrard's managerial career and though he's pleased with the six months he's had in the job, he's still striving for more.
"I've said to the staff and players that we all have to look at ourselves and what we have done well and what we could do better for the second part of the season.
"We will come back with the bit between our teeth and try and improve and try to push again."

It looks like Gerrard could be the natural successor to Jurgen Klopp, but Xabi Alonso would certainly be a valued contender if he indeed proves himself in management.
Make it happen!
