Xabi Alonso dismisses the possibility of ending his career at Real Sociedad

Alonso has dismissed the possibility of ending his career at Real Sociedad

Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso has dismissed the possibility of ending his career at former club Real Sociedad.

The 35-year-old last week announced that he will retire from professional football at the end of the season.

Alonson started his career with Sociedad, but told Diario Vasco: “Everyone asked me about my future. Announcing it, I feel liberated. I only waited for the right moment to announce it, and the moment was now.

“[The possibility of returning to Real Sociedad?] It was an option that would have been good, because it would have closed a circle, but I think that it is better to leave it here and now.”
