Xabi Alonso: "Winning Euro 2008 with Spain shut Carragher up..."
The former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Spain player had some interesting anecdotes about his time at Anfield as he chatted to DAZN.
Gerrard: "Gerrard and Carragher were the ones who I used to talk to a lot inside the dressing room at Liverpool. They were playing for England and we were with Spain, Carragher would always say: ‘Nah. There's no way you'll ever win anything. You can’t run. You've got no legs’. You'll never win anything’. So when we won Euro 2008, I sent him a text message, and I went back to Liverpool for a visit I told him: ‘It's not all about running. That shut you up!".
Bother Mikel, a role model: "He is the best coach I have ever had and the one I have learned the most from, because he was my older brother and always was there to help me. To be at his level, I needed to make a real effort. Even when we were both at Real Sociedad we had parallel careers: in terms of age, level, opportunities and trajectory we were always together. I am very lucky to have someone like my brother, for the good and the bad things".
