Xabi Alonso reveals surprise Jurgen Klopp regret

Liverpool legend Xabi Alonso has admitted he wishes he had the opportunity to play under Jurgen Klopp before he retired. The midfielder played for Liverpool from 2004 to 2009, after he left for Real Madrid then Bayern Munich. “I have played so many times against him, I would have loved to have been coached by him," said Alonso. “But I am really happy he’s in Liverpool , [he is a] top, top manager and he seems really passionate, because he gets really close to the players, but is as well a good thinker of the game.” Alonso also backed Liverpool to win the Premier League title ahead of Manchester City. "I really, really want [Liverpool to win the title] because we have been chasing it for so long, so long," he said. “I know how much it means for the club, for their supporters, after so long without winning it.”
