For all those that believe the FA Cup is diminishing in importance, the following video proves that two of the biggest names in world football were eager to know how their former teams got on at Wembley on Saturday.
Spain TV station Cuatro had their eagled-eyed cameras out (as ever) and saw Xabi Alonso tell Jose Mourinho that Andy Carroll had pulled a goal back as Real Madrid prepared for their La Liga match at Granada.
Of course, Xabi Alonso and The Special One had their own personal interests in the game having spent time at Liverpool and Chelsea respectively.
Once Alonso sees Liverpool have scored, he tells Mourinho “Dos a Uno. Carroll.” To which Mourinho asks if there are twenty minutes remaining.
In truth, whilst Alonso looks concerned about Liverpool’s plight, Mourinho appears to be less bothered.
