Another Ending For Xabi

A post shared by Xabi Alonso (@xabialonso) on

He just loves to drive the knife in, doesn’t he?  I’ll always think of him as ours, no matter  how irrational that is. Today ultimately ended up as Xabi’s (and Philipp Lahm’s) last appearance in European competition as they are both hanging up their boots at the end of the season. That game had some very questionable decisions by the referees (in both directions) but I think, in the end, we deserved the win over the two legs.  I’m sorry to see the back of two such wonderful players, but I’m not sorry we advanced.
