Alonso, however, remained coy on his future when asked about possibly taking over the Anfield job next season and said: “I am not thinking about the next step. I am thinking about where I am right now. I am in a great place and I am enjoying myself. And I think it’s the right place, so that’s all I can say. What’s going to happen in the future? I don’t know and I don’t really care at the moment.”
