"Today is a sad day as I’m closing a wonderful chapter that started 5 years ago. I will always be part of the Real Madrid family. Leaving Real Madrid was the hardest decision I have ever had to take. I want to thank everyone for treating me well."
He ditched me in year 2009 because, how to put that, my family thinks another guy is better.
It’s cool how Xabi Alonso is mastering every possible way of breaking the human heart. He did it slow and agonizing in 2009, “ooh, I love you, why don’t you love me, oh, I know you say you do but remember how you didn’t like two years ago, oh I’m staying, no I’m going, I love you, I’ll always love you, I’m going to talk about you forever so you never forget how much you loved me, maybe we’ll get back together someday, ha ha no we won’t, but who knows, maybe, but no, but maybe" and that was horrible (I wasn’t actually there, but I absorbed the horror by osmosis).
And now, here I am, standing stunned and gutted on our front porch as he drags out a hastily-packed suitcase and kisses me on the cheek. A huge fancy Porsche purrs in the driveway with THAT SLUT PEP GUARDIOLA in the drivers’ seat. I thought they hated each other. “I love you, but I think we have passed all of our good days together,” midfield maestro Xabi Alonso says gently. “I thought it would be best to do this quickly.” “But,” I whisper. “But —” ”Have you met my friend, Toni Kroos?” Xabi inquires, shoving some Peeta Mellark looking dude at me. “Toni, please hold her. She likes to be held when she is emotional.” “DON’T I GET A SAY IN THIS??” I plead. “DON’T YOU OWE ME THAT MUCH????” “Goodbye forever,” Xabi Alonso says. “We’ll always have Lisbon, although I did not technically play there.” He kisses my cheek and jogs down the steps. Pep Guardiola honks the horn merrily and they zoom into the sunset, leaving me staring after them. “WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?” I scream at Toni Kroos. “WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?????”
this xabi news has me so freaking upset
i am heartbroken in more ways than one
I am heartbroken because the fact is that Xabi is the reason I “found” real madrid. He stood out to me during the 2010 world cup and I remember being so impressed by his skill and ability. I started really looking…
i know we’ve all talked about xabi but can we talk about him more ok thank
this right here this is the man who moved to the club just to piss rafa benitez off. this is the man who would tweet about liverpool constantly. this is the man who would never so much as say “hala…
just feeling miserable. All my favorites higuain, ozil, Di Maria are out…..when ozil left, I felt my heart shatter but “club over player”right? So I just dealt with it and continued supporting Real Madrid but with Xabi gone, my spirit is just broken. especially so many people spreading lies/half truths, vilifying his character calling him lackey….just sickens me. just feel so done with this club and it’s fans…
Cosmin Moți became a folk hero after he switched from centre-back to goalkeeper during the game between Ludogorets and Steaua Bucuresti.
When the game went to penalties, Cosmin saved two goals as his team eventually won the shoot-out against Steaua. Ludogorets will now play in the group stage of the Champions League for the first time in their history. (x)
Where are all this fucked up rumors about Xabi leaving Real Madrid coming from?
Xabi from Twitter.
I quit the Spanish National Team. The hardest thing is knowing when to say goodbye, and after thinking about it, I think that my time with the National squad has come to an end.
It has been a glorious period with the Spanish team that started more than 11 years ago, I have formed part of an historical generation that has fulfilled the dreams of millions of fans, achieving something as unique as winning a World Cup and two European Championships in a row.
Since that April 30th, 2003 when I made my debut aged 21, I have only lived great moments, so I only have words of gratitude for all those with whom I have shared more than one decade.
I want to thank all of my coaches, teammates, employees of this house and the millions of fans who have always shown me their love and respect.
Iñaki Sáez, the unforgettable Luis Aragonés and Vicente del Bosque are figures that I will always carry with me because they have made me grow professionally and personally.
I could not enumerate all the teammates with whom I’ve shared this jersey, but from here I want to thank each and every one of them all that they have shown and taught me during this unforgettable part of my life.
All the professionals who work for the RFEF have shown me their love and dedication making me feel like home. Theirs are also all the successes we have achieved.
Thanks to Real Sociedad, Liverpool and Real Madrid for letting me be part of a dream. In all my clubs they have always supported me to make my dream come true.
To conclude, I wish to convey my sincere thanks to the fans. We dream together and share the glory. I have lived many unforgettable moments in which you were the main protagonists.
I wish good luck to all those who will continue working and fighting for this jersey. You will all reach new successes.
Thank you all and goodbye.
