During his time as a Reds player, Xabi Alonso won a Champions League and an FA Cup winner, so his time on Merseyside was an era of great victories under Spanish manager Rafael Benitez. It was a time when Liverpool tended to rely heavily on Spain, with the likes of Pepe Reina and later Fernando Torres becoming important players for the Reds.

However, Xabi Alonso is one of the most loved, as the former Reds midfielder always showed a great level throughout his time at Liverpool, always giving incredible demonstrations of his great qualities with incredible changes of play from 40 or 60 metres with great precision, and always knowing where his team-mates would be.He also had a spectacular mid and long distance shot, scoring goals from free kicks, hitting the ball from outside the box, from midfield. Xabi Alonso had an incredible technique at his feet, which quickly endeared him to the fans at Anfield where they spent great moments of happiness and great success together.

That is why the fans have a great affection for the now Spanish coach, who knows what it is like to succeed at Liverpool, as well as having completely imbibed the essence of the club, as together with Steven Gerrard they have been one of the best midfield duos in the club's history, so no doubt he knows what Liverpool represents and could defend it now as a coach.

While it is no surprise that Spanish coach Xabi Alonso is the best candidate to replace Jürgen Klopp's future departure, for all that Alonso did during his time at Liverpool, this is no guarantee of a resounding success, as German coach Klopp left the Reds fans' standards of desire very high, while there would be great patience over the Spanish coach's results, the place he has to fill is too big. So his job will have to be a very good one if he is to be Klopp's replacement.
