Alonso open to Liverpool return

Alonso left Liverpool for Real in the summer of 2009 after a

difficult last 12 months at the club with then Reds boss Rafa

Benitez willing to sell him as he pursued Gareth Barry. The

29-year-old is happy with life at Madrid, but he is open to the

possibility of one day returning to Merseyside. When asked if would

ever consider returning to Liverpool, Alonso told Liverpool tv:

“Why not? I think that in football so many things change, and why

not? I have my red passion and if circumstances arrived then why

not? “At the moment I don’t know what is going to happen, but it

could be a possibility. Never say never.” Alonso, who spent five

years at Liverpool, admitted it was a major wrench to leave Anfield

and he revealed he still misses the club. “It was difficult because

Liverpool has been and always will be very special,” added Alonso.

“It is in my heart because I have lived very intense things there.

“I miss lots of things. I miss the lads, I miss the atmosphere at

Melwood – it was a great place to work, and the scenario of Anfield

is unbeatable. “The special nights I have been privileged enough to

live, those will be in my memory forever and they are difficult to

compare anywhere in the world.”
