German class with Thiago and Xabi Alonso
Thiago and Xabi Alonso always give everything on the field of play -- and off it as well, as the Spanish midfield duo are proving in their dedicated efforts to learn German! The pair are becoming as good at the game of questions and answers as they are with the ball at their feet. And with the Oktoberfest on the horizon, it's a perfect opportunity for Thiago and Alonso to learn useful phrases for the world's biggest popular festival. Best of all, FCB.tv was allowed a sneak peak at language teacher Max and his model pupils. Watch and enjoy!
