Habier Alonso Olano was born on November 25, 1981 in the Basque city of Tolosa.

Xabi Alonso was destined to become a football player, since his whole family is connected with this sport. His father (Perico Alonso) was the star of “Barcelona” and “Real Sociedad”, with whom he became the champion of Spain. Brother Habi – Mikel Alonso – plays in Bolton, and another brother John – a football referee. Xabi Alonso grew up with Mikel Arteta, who played for Everton and went with him to the same school.

In 1999, the footballer made his debut for Real Sociedad in the Spanish Cup match, and in the 2000/01 season he went on a leasing agreement to play for Eibar. Two years later, Khabi became a key player of Real Sociedad, took the second place in the championship with the team after Madrid’s Real Madrid.

In 2004, Rafael Benitez, who appeared on the site of the head coach of Liverpool, called the Spaniard in the camp of the Merseyside, to which Khabi Alonso agreed, and his team received 10.5 million pounds. He started the season well, but six months later he suffered an ankle injury and was out for several months. To the decisive matches in the Champions League, Xabi returned and in an enchanting final against AC Milan, with a score of 2: 3, did not score a penalty, but then managed to finish it in the net and equalized the result, and later the “reds” won in the post-match series of 11 meters, and the Spaniard became the owner of the Champions Cup.

Later he won with Liverpool the European Super Cup, as well as the Cup and the Super Bowl of England. In 2006, there was a memorable episode – Xabi Alonso scored an absolutely fantastic ball from his half of the field at the gate of “Luton” in the FA Cup. One of the fans of Liverpool bet 200 pounds on the fact that Khabi before the end of the year will score a similar goal, and the Spaniard fulfilled the desire, and the fan got 25,000 pounds. Later, the footballer admitted that he often worked out such blows in training.

In 2008, Khaby lost his place in the line-up after buying Javier Mascherano, but then Rafael Benitez moved Steven Gerrard closer to the attack, making room for Xabi Alonso.

In 2003, Basque played for Spain for the first time, it happened in a friendly against Ecuador. At the 2006 World Cup, Khabi scored the first goal for the Spaniards – the goal of the national team of Ukraine in the opening match, which ended in a victory 4: 0. On Euro 2008, the midfielder of Liverpool took part in four matches and became a gold medalist of the continental championship in the Spanish national team.

After the European championship was over, rumors were circulating in the press about the possible purchase of Liverpool by Gareth Barry and the sale of Xabi Alonso (most often in connection with this mentioned Turin Juventus), but none of these transactions took place.

Nevertheless, in the summer of 2009, Xabi still left the “Liverpool”, going to the Madrid “Real”. For the Basque transfer, Madrid paid about 30 million pounds. The main reason for the transition itself Alonso called the desire to become part of the success of the “Real”. In Madrid, Alonso received his favorite number 14 and the position of the base supporting midfielder team. In his first season in Madrid, Alonso, alas, did not win a single trophy, and in the summer the club was replaced by the head coach. However, when Jose Mourinho, Xabi remained the iron player of the main line-up.

In the 2010/11 season, Xabi Alonso played 52 games and scored one goal.

Season 2012/13, due to injuries, turned out for Xabi not too successful, the situation was aggravated after the conflict with the team coach Jose Mourinho.

August 29, 2014, Habi signed a two-year contract with the Munich “Bavaria”, the transfer amount was from five to ten million euros.

At the 2010 World Cup, won by the Spaniards, Alonso, unlike Euro 2008, Alonso was the main player of the team, having formed an amazing bunch of supporting midfielders with Sergio Busquets. Their duo became one of the symbols of Spain’s successful game in the fields of South Africa.
