Alonso has a big place in a lot of Liverpool's fans hearts after his amazing performances with Steven Gerrard during his time at the club.

One player who is also full of praise for the Spaniard is his former Liverpool teammate Dirk Kuyt.

"He was a great player. He wasn't the quickest – just like me! His passing and his mind was so good," said Kuyt.

"I still remember his shots from the halfway line when he spotted the goalkeeper off his line a bit too much.

"It was a huge blow when he decided to go to Real Madrid. But everyone saw he had a great career after Liverpool, he won silverware with Madrid and Bayern Munich.

"I think he'll become a very good coach in the future, too."
