Real Sociedad B coach Xabi: Replacing Klopp at Liverpool?

Real Sociedad B coach Xabi Alonso says he remains connected to Liverpool.

The Spaniard, who made 210 appearances for Liverpool, has been speaking about the chances of one day returning to Anfield as manager, and the idea of replacing Jurgen Klopp in the dugout.

"I am here in San Sebastian and Liverpool fans, they salute me and I still feel that support," Alonso told CNN.

"For me, that feeling in life is great. Right now, Jurgen [Klopp] is doing a great job, so I think that the job is fulfilled, but for sure that Liverpool is top, top club for me, very, very, special."

Xabi also stated he knew that he had the traits to become a manager when playing.

"Sometimes the manager, he doesn't have time to give an instruction on the pitch," said Alonso.

"So you need players to be able to take those decisions when you are playing so quick. And that was my job, and that's why it became natural to me, to me, that process to try to be a manager."
