Alvaro Abeloa is happy with his latest piece of football memorabilia
Alvaro Arbeloa has taken to Instagram to thank Steven Gerrard for giving him his shirt following Liverpool’s Champions League defeat by Real Madrid.
The former Liverpool defender swapped shirts with the veteran midfielder after Wednesday night’s game at Anfield (Mario Balotelli, take note).
Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema handed Los Blancos a comfortable 3-0 victory on Merseyside.
And Arbeloa, 31, has revealed his delight at getting his hands on Gerrard’s shirt after the match.
He posted the picture above on Instagram and wrote: “Amazing gift from a living legend. Memorabilia of another night of historic football at Anfield.”
Arbeloa joined Real Madrid from Liverpool in 2009 for a fee of £5m on a five-year contract.
