If you know football, you’ll know it’s fucking impossible to hate Xabi Alonso.


It’d be genuinely easier to kick a kitten in the face than hate the Spaniard, and Real Madrid have released a video to their YouTube account which pretty much confirms it.

Alonso was playing for Bayern Munich as they took on his former employers Real Madrid in a pre season friendly, and it gave the former Liverpool midfielder a chance to reunite with his former team mates before the game.

They all pile through the door and instantly embrace the 33-year-old when they see him, and a bromance-tastic love fest ensues.

Check it out: 


Classy bastard.

My personal favourite is the fifth guy in the video, who reaches out to Xabi before being inadvertently pied off by the midfielder.

Meanwhile, Martin Odegaard looks like a schoolkid waiting to meet a celebrity for the first time, and the moment with Luka Modric reunites one of the finest midfield partnerships of the last decade.

Stay classy, Xabi, everyone loves you.
