Former Liverpool and Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso has been appointed as the new head coach of Real Sociedad's B team.

The 37-year-old has signed a two-year deal with his boyhood club, where he made 124 appearances before joining Liverpool in 2004.

Alonso joins Sociedad from Real Madrid, where he spent the season working as a youth coach. He replaces Aitor Zulaika, who has been sacked.

Alonso won the Champions League and the FA Cup during his five-year spell with Liverpool, before moving to Real Madrid.

He spent a further five years at the Bernabeu, winning a La Liga title, two Copa del Reys and another Champions League, before joining Bayern Munich, where he won three Bundesliga titles and a German Cup.

Alonso also won 114 caps for Spain, winning the World Cup in 2010 as well as the European Championship in 2008 and 2012.
