Xabi Alonso has earned himself a reputation as one of the classiest midfielders in Europe - and when videos like this emerge it's easy to see why.

The former Liverpool and Real Madrid ace is still going strong at Bayern Munich and, despite being the ripe old age of 33, shows no sign of slowing down.

The video, which has been doing the rounds on social media sites this morning, shows the Spanish midfielder strolling on to the pitch ahead of a Bayern training session. 

Then, with the ball the ball in his hand, the midfield maestro spun an inch-perfect shot into the net. From behind the goal. With his weaker foot.

Yeah, it's not too bad at all really, is it?

The veteran midfielder is evidently still enjoying himself at Bayern, although that hasn't stopped him being linked with a surprise move back to Liverpool. The former Real Sociedad man spent five seasons at Anfield and earned himself a place in fans' hearts for his goal in the 2005 Champions League final win against AC Milan. 

Bild claimed he wouldn't be offered the chance to stay at the Allianz Arena with his contract set to expire, and it's been suggested a return to Liverpool could be possible - but remains highly unlikely.

Would you like to see Alonso back at Liverpool?
