Xavi’s Wikipedia Page Gets Brilliant Joe Allen Update

Xavi’s Wikipedia Page Gets Brilliant Joe Allen Update

Xavi‘s Wikipedia page got a hilarious Joe Allen update earlier today.

The Spanish legend is regularly linked to the Welsh midfielder following Brendan Rodgers’ famous comparison between the two in 2012.

That came after Rodgers spent £15million to take Allen along with him from Swansea to Liverpool.

And although he was probably half joking, Allen is still referred to as the ‘Welsh Xavi’ by fans of the Anfield club and his Welsh supporters.

Allen has been in impressive form so far for Wales at Euro 2016 and has been linked with a big money move away from Liverpool this summer as he moves into the final year of his current contract.

This update on Xavi’s Wikipedia page gives the Barcelona and Spanish midfield legend some big, and hilarious, praise.

It came earlier today, and was screengrabbed by empireofthekop.com:

We’re willing to ignore the spelling of the word nicknamed because it’s a pretty funny update.

It’s been changed back to normal now, but gave us another laugh amid all the praise for Welsh midfield star Allen recently.
