Alonso undecided on future

Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso has again refused to confirm whether he will still be playing his football at Anfield next season.

The Spanish international has been heavily linked with a big money move to La Liga giants Real Madrid this summer and reports suggest that Reds boss Rafa Benitez has a job on his hands to tempt him to stay on Merseyside.

After scoring Spain’s winning goal in the 3-2 victory over South Africa yesterday in the FIFA Confederations Cup, Alonso spoke to Spanish football journal, Don Balon

He said, “In respect to all this I have not closed any door and we will just have to wait and see what happens.

“It is always positive when various teams are said to want you because that is better than nobody being interested, but I cannot say much more.

“I know that I have to keep playing well and will be able to decide what happens next whenever it arises.

“I do not think a move to Real Madrid is impossible, but I would also have no regrets at all staying at Liverpool.”
