Steven Gerrard has revealed Xabi Alonso would be the man he’d choose to bring back to Liverpool if he could re-sign any former Red. On Tuesday, the now Real Madrid midfielder told Liverpoolfc.com of his admiration for the Anfield captain, insisting he could play in any team in world football. Then, in a live Twitter chat with supporters hosted by his boot suppliers adidas at Melwood, Gerrard explained why Alonso is the player he’d love to see back at Liverpool and admitted he misses playing alongside him. Here’s a selection of the best question and answers from the chat: Q: What was the best moment of your LFC career so far? @zaman_lfc @Emma_LF Gerrard: Istanbul, 2005 Q: When you retire will continue in football? @KatieCheg Gerrard: I hope so, I’d like to stay involved in the club for a long time Q: What position would you play yourself in if managing Liverpool on Football Manager? @ItsPaulJessop Gerrard: Attacking Midfield! Q: Who is the greatest striker you have played with in your opinion? @dannyei2000 Gerrard: Luis Suarez Q: What is the best goal you have scored in a Liverpool shirt? @shahabudinqLFC @ThisKidEllio Gerrard: FA Cup final vs. West Ham — it was the game, the timing and the importance Q: Who’s the best football player you’ve ever played against? @Ollyvanveen14 @kweekes1993 @_jamielfc Gerrard: Zinedine Zidane — he had everything Q: If you could bring any previous LFC player back to LFC, who would it be and why? @susanpscott Gerrard: Xabi Alonso — best midfielder I’ve played with, I miss playing with him Q: What moment would you want to re-live? @PamelaGhag Gerrard: Istanbul 2005, best night of my career Q: What song do you listen to before matches? @Didi11146 Gerrard: I listen to lots of stuff, but Dakota by Stereophonics is my favorite Q: What’s the biggest thing to remember when following your dream? @Aamir_Kala Gerrard: Give it your best everyday and stick to it, no regrets Q: Would you rather play alongside Messi or Ronaldo, and why? @Aamir_Kala Gerrard: I’d like to play alongside both! But if I had to pick, Messi — he’s a genius Q: When you first signed for Liverpool, what were your goals? Did you expect to come this far? @MHolland93 Gerrard: My goal was to establish myself in the team, I never expected to come this far!
