Rafa:- “Alonso Stays!”

Rafa Benitez moved to halt the speculation on Xabi Alonso’s future by declaring he wants the midfielder to stay at Anfield. Alonso has had to endure the press linking him with Arsenal, Manchester City and Real Madrid in recent weeks is definately in Rafa’s plans next season. Speaking in today’s Echo, the Liverpool boss said:

“Xabi has been doing really well this season. He’s a key player for us and with him being fit again it will give us a different option in midfield. Xabi has been talking about how he wants to stay here and we certainly want to keep him so I don’t think there will be any problems.”

Alonso will be fit to return to the squad for tomorrow’s clash at West Brom.
