Xabi Alonso Rolls Back The Years With A Stunning Free-Kick Against Liverpool

Xabi Alonso Rolls Back The Years With A Stunning Free-Kick Against Liverpool

Xabi Alonso spent five memorable seasons with Liverpool, lifting the Champions League in 2005 and the FA Cup in 2006, so it must have hurt slightly to bag against his beloved side during a legends game on Saturday afternoon.

The 36-year-old put in a Man Of The Match performance at Anfield as a packed out stadium applauded the 36-year-old throughout.

And in the 72nd minute, Alonso rolled back the years and walloped in a cracking right-footed strike past a helpless David James.

TAKE.A.BOW.SON.

In a match held for the Liverpool Foundation, the brilliant Alonso did, however, produce an absolute blunder as fans watched a high scoring game at Anfield.

A selection of Liverpool legends came up against Bayern Munich on Saturday afternoon and in a moment of madness, Alonso forgot he was in a red jersey and passed it straight to Alexander Zickler, who headed home from 12 yards.

We know you enjoyed your time in Munich, Xabi, but surely this was a step too far?

It was a fitting 5-5 result as the likes of Gerrard and Alonso combined once again - a moment that left Liverpool fans drooling in the stands.

n other news, Alonso is the latest footballer to be involved in a tax scandal, with the former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich midfielder being accused of defrauding the country €2 million worth of taxes.

The Spanish prosecutor said in a statement on Wednesday that it was looking for a jail sentence of five years and a fine of €4 million for the illegal acts that took place between 2010 and 2012.

The prosecutor also called for the same sentencing for Alonso's financial advisor Ivan Zaldua Azcuenaga.

So far none of the players charged have done any time behind bars.

Thoughts on the Alonso scandal? And is he one of Liverpool's greatest ever?

Let us know in the comments.
