adidas Announce Xabi Alonso as Manager of Tango Squad F.C.

Over the last year the Tango League has taken shape in offering a proving ground for street styled and savvy players to shine. Taking it to the next level and announcing Tango Squad F.C. adidas have unveiled that the team is to be managed by none other than Xabi Alonso.

A player who has bossed the game with suave sophistication and a sharp attitude, Xabi Alonso has a strong look as a respected manager. Having only recently hung up his re-worked Predator Mania boots, this re-introduction into football comes shaped with three stripes and a group of players with hella swag. Squad goals doesn't come close. This group has been assembled across Europe and whittled down from the strongest creative football talent Europe has to offer. They may not be signed as professional players but it's arguably the next best thing, as the video below details.

Madrid is where they start their journey and following the Champions League calendar, the side will face match-up after match-up led by Xabi Alonso. A Champions League winner himself, few come decorated with silverware quite like he does. From Liverpool to Real Madrid to Bayern Munich, he's done it all, but not this. A fresh challenge with big characters and straight up energy, this is real talk with real ballers. Bring it on.
