” I was right to leave Madrid” – Alonso.
The midfielder has no second thoughts over his choice to move to the Allianz Arena subsequent to putting in five years in the Spanish capital
Xabi Alonso is sure he was on the whole correct to leave Real Madrid for Bayern Munich a year ago.
The 33-year-old moved to the Allianz Arena in August 2014 following five years in the Spanish capital and won the Bundesliga last season under Pep Guardiola
Alonso keeps up the time was on the whole correct to settle on another test and denies he is considering conveying his playing vocation to an end sooner rather than later.
“I think so,” he told Bayern’s official website when asked if he felt he had made the right decision. “I’ve really enjoyed being at the club so far. It’s an excellent experience for me and I still hope to have more success this season than last.
“I feel as good as I have done before and I enjoy every minute on the pitch. If that wasn’t the case, it would be the moment to stop.”
Alonso has now set his sights on emulating former Netherlands international Clarence Seedorf by winning the Champions League with three different clubs.
“It would be the third team I’ve won the trophy with, something that only Clarence Seedorf has managed to do to date.
“It would be something very special [to face Madrid], something exciting. I wore the white jersey for five years and I still have a close relationship with the club, and with the people there, just as I do with Liverpool.”
