Gerrard backing Liverpool bid for Real Madrid's Xabi

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers' pursuit of Xabi Alonso has the backing of skipper Steven Gerrard.

The Mail on Sunday says Rodgers is interested in Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso who is still revered on Merseyside.

Gerrard revealed in November, given the opportunity, he would jump at the chance to bring Alonso back to the club.

"Xabi Alonso - best midfielder I've played with, I miss playing with him," he wrote.
