Arbeloa claims Xabi sale could end Liverpool’s title hopes

Both Arbeloa and Alonso made the switch from Liverpool to Real Madrid this summer.

“The thing I always say about Xabi is that he may not be a match-winner, but he does win you titles,” Arbeloa told The People.

“He brings so much balance and order to a team, and it is impossible to over-estimate how important a player he is.”
