CNN have produced a cool feature on Xabi Alonso, “football’s ultimate winner”.
The news channel speaks with the former Liverpool and Real Madrid midfielder after reeling off his impressive list of titles won during a fantastic career.
Alonso, now 35, is a key part of Carlo Ancelotti’s side and after winning two Bundesliga titles is now under pressure from RB Leipzig, the surprise side in Germany this season.
Comparing RB Leipzig to Leicester City
RB Leipzig may be unpopular with many fans in Germany due to their ownership structure but they have spent heavily in recent years.
Alonso compares RB Leipzig to last year’s Premier League champions on the video below and sees a lot of similarities to Leicester.
Xabi says: “They have a very clear idea of how they want to play, they play one game a week, they are on a high, so much confidence. I hope not, but at the moment they are on the same run.”
