Was Xabi Alonso’s wife a receptionist?

One hilarious tale came while she worked as a hotel receptionist in Liverpool, where Peter Crouch first laid eyes on her.

Ex-Reds ace and Alonso team-mate Crouch recalled meeting Nagore and confessed his love at first-sight reaction, before Liverpool team-mates including Jamie Carragher broke the news to him that she was with Xabi.

Peter explained: “On signing for Liverpool I stayed at the Hope Street Hotel.

On reception was a girl so good-looking I couldn’t quite believe she was smiling at me all the time.

“I told the lads in training, ‘honestly, she’s beautiful, I think I’ve got a shout here.’

“Jamie Carragher called a few other senior players over, ‘tell them again, Crouchie.’

“So I did, ‘amazing. Dark-haired. Spanish-looking. I’m in there.’ It turned out she was Xabi Alonso‘s partner.

“She was doing a bit of work to practise her language skills. He was nice about it. So was she. Carra less so.”

Both Alonso and Aranburu are natives of the Basque region of Spain.
