Xabi Alonso has a staunch following out there who find him rather attractive. I can see why. He has a chiselled jawline and has a passing resemblance to a serial killer Miami blood splatter analyst, but surely him walking around in lederhosen must put some of you off? No? Seriously….
Here we have an image of new Bayern Munich signings Mehdi Benatia and Xabi Alonso getting into the German spirit of things, but neither of the new signings look happy having to do it. Xabi Alonso signed from Real Madrid for an undisclosed fee and made his debut in the 1 – 1 draw against FC Schalke 04 last night whilst Mehdi Benatia joined from Roma for £21 million.
It is reputed that Blackpool refused to pay £100,000 for Mehdi Benatia. According to the Daily Mail, Ian Holloway scouted him whilst he was relatively unknown at Clermont Foot but Karl Oyston refused to pay £100k for him – despite him already being a full Moroccan international. He then went on to join Udinese on a free transfer.
