Talking football with Xabi Alonso

ESPN FC's Raf Honigstein sits down with Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso where he talks about his move from Real Madrid and the similarities between the Bundesliga and Premier League.

It's sounds odd to call a World Cup, European championship and Champions League winner a revelation, but that's exactly what Xabi Alonso has been since swapping the white of Real Madrid with the red and white of Bayern Munich this summer. The Spaniard has emerged as the most influential player in the Bundesliga in the space of only three months.

Philipp Lahm's fractured ankle forces Bayern Munich to look at depth

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has been ruled out for three months with a broken ankle.

Losing someone of Philipp Lahm's caliber would be a crushing blow to every single club on the planet. Even to this buoyant Bayern Munich side, unbeaten in all competitions this season, losing their skipper and talisman is more than a slight inconvenience.

The 31-year-old went under the knife on Thursday morning after his untimely ankle fracture suffered in training on Tuesday which will rule him out for three months. He will spend a few days in hospital after having a surgical plate and screw...
