Xabi Alonso backs Brendan Rodgers to succeed at Liverpool [Video]

Ever since Xabi Alonso left Liverpool for Real Madrid, the Merseyside giants have been on a downward spiral.

As part of that night in Istanbul in 2005, Alonso holds a special place in the hearts of Liverpool fans and still keeps a keen interest in goings on at Anfield.

Earlier this week, Alonso spoke to Spanish Liverpool site Esto Es Anfield and backs Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers to succeed in his second season at the club.
