Gaelic Football: Meath Kop big fan in Alonso; GAELIC WORLD.

LIVERPOOL and Spanish midfielder Xabi Alonso can be revealed as a closet Meath GAA supporter.

Alonso spent a spell in his teens in Meath town Kells with a group of Spanish students and dabbled in gaelic football while there.

The 2005 Champions League winner will reveal his Meath links in TG4's new TV series 'Hector san UK'.

Presenter Hector O hEochagain even convinced Alonso to pose with a Meath jersey and a gaelic football in the programme which will be screened in the Spring.
