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.”
