Where is Xabi Alonso now?

Regarded as one of the best midfielders of his generation, Liverpool FC legend Xabi Alonso called time on his distinguished career in 2017 after spending three seasons at Bayern Munich.

He enjoyed a trophy-laden career at both club and international level including the UEFA Champions League with both Liverpool and Bayern Munich, the FA Cup, the La Liga title and three Bundesliga titles.

At international level, he won 114 caps and was part of the Spanish golden generation of players which won the FIFA World Cup in 2010 and the UEFA European Championships in 2008 and 2012.

Upon retiring from playing, Alonso took his first steps into coaching when he was appointed as manager of Tango Squad FC in 2016 which was a team set up by Adidas that pulled together the best non-signed street footballers from across Europe to represent the sports brand both on and off the pitch.

In 2018 he returned to former side Real Madrid to coach within their academy whilst also completing his UEFA coaching badges. During his time there he led their under-14’s side to a league title.

He is currently manager of Real Sociedad’s ‘B’ team which play in the Spanish Second Division joining them in July 2019.
