Photo: Liverpool legends Arbeloa and Alonso take Anfield snap
Former Liverpool star Alvaro Arbeloa and Xabi Alonso take a photo on the hallowed Anfield turf
Alvaro Arbeloa and Xabi Alonso formed part of Liverpool’s Spanish contingent under Rafael Benitez, and the pair had the chance to grace the Anfield turf one last time on Sunday.
Arbeloa and Alonso, who were team-mates at Liverpool and Real Madrid, were asked along to Steven Gerrard’s charity match on Merseyside on Sunday.
The Real Madrid defender started at right-back in Jamie Carragher’s XI, whilst Bayern star Alonso played alongside his former midfield partner Gerrard.
The Spanish duo appeared to be thrilled with their return to their old stomping ground, posing together on the hallowed Anfield pitch for a photo.
Arbeloa posted the above photo and wrote the following caption: “We’ll never walk alone.”
The all-star friendly finished all square at Anfield despite goals from Mario Balotelli and Didier Drogba handing Carragher’s side a 2-0 lead.
But Steven Gerrard scored twice from the penalty spot as the Liverpool captain introduced former team-mates Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez in the second half.
