Xabi Alonso has been unveiled as the new manager of Real Sociedad B and Liverpool fans have expressed a desire to see him one day manage the Reds.

Upon his unveiling, Alonso said: “I am very excited and eager to help the future of the Real. I am very happy to return.

“I think there were many reasons to return, both sports and personal. Everything counts.”

With Steven Gerrard moving into management in the last two years, it has allowed fans the chance to fantasise about what it would be like for him to manage the Reds.

He has acquitted himself well at Rangers but now with Alonso being handed the Sociedad B job, supporters are excited about what it might be like to see him sit in the hot seat at Anfield.

Here is how they have reacted.

It would be interesting to see what kind of football Alonso would have a potential Liverpool team playing.

Of course, Jurgen Klopp isn’t going anywhere anytime soon with three years still remaining on his contract on Merseyside with there still a chance that he could renew his terms.

He won the Champions League last season and is hoping to add to his haul when the 2019/20 campaign kicks off in a month’s time.
