      Top player, top man is Xabi. Head screwed on, the kinda guy who leads by example, wholehearted, will definitely be missed.

      Was gutted to see him leave us, but thats a whole different thread.

      All the best Xabi, you are well remembered here.

      Announced that he is going into management. Future Liverpool manager? :D

      Played under Mourinho, Guardiola, Ancelotti, Benitez and Del Bosque, but also a very intelligent person/ex footballer. I can see him forging a very successful career in management!

      Just a shame that now managers are given no time

      I reckon Xabi will be an absolute corker of a manager. CL Winner and all. Great to see him hard at work for his qualifications.

      "Well at the moment they have an absolutely fantastic manager and we all as Liverpool fans are thrilled with Jürgen [Klopp], with what he's doing. You could feel he was the man because of the way he embraced the Liverpool culture, the way he connected with the fans - you could see that he could make a great job. Even the best expectations he has fulfilled. He's the man at the moment.

      "Watching the team lifting the Champions League and watching the fans enjoy it as much as we did in 2005, it brought back a lot of memories. We [some of the 2005 team] were in the stadium, old team-mates gathering together again, Stevie [Gerrard], Jerzy [Dudek], Sami [Hyypia], we were together celebrating what they have achieved this year.

      "It was really emotional. You know how special Liverpool is, once a red always a red and that's not a slogan, that's not a logo - it's real and we share that belonging.

      That final year he was with us - he was exceptional. Such a shame we couldn’t win the league that year!

      One of the best ever midfielders to play for Liverpool. I can see him managing us one day.

      Or maybe we could come in as an assistant to Gerrard (dreaming!)

      There's a question.
      Would you rather have Gerrard or Alonso manage the club?

      Would have to be Stevie.

       Gerrard was the better player of the two but i wonder who will become the better manager? I hope they both do fantastically well of course and maybe they both may get the top job one day.

      Gerrard was the more dynamic of the pair.
      Alonso saw a game differently to most other players.

      I know what you're saying racer and I love Xabi but Stevie could play his role and everything else. Anyway, both fantastic players and hopefully both manage LFC sucessfully one day.

      Would love to see him as a manager. Think he understanding of the game is fantastic.

      Would love to see him brought into the current set up or in a job in Netherlands with Feyenoord get a few loan players to him.
