Former Liverpool legend Xabi Alonso will retire from football at the end of the season.

The 35-year old Spanish midfielder was brought in by Rafa Benitez in 2004 and played an integral part in Liverpool's Champions League winning campaign of 2005.

He moved onto Real Madrid in 2009 then Bayern Munich in 2014.

"I've experienced so much as a player with Real Sociedad, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich," Alonso said. "They are all great clubs. And of course, with the Spanish national team. I never would've thought I'd have such a great career, and I hope there's more to come before it ends."
