Chelsea left wingback has enjoyed a good debut season for Chelsea since he joined from Serie A side Fiorentina in the summer.

Alonso has played for Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland during his career and he was teammates with ex-Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge at Bolton during the 2010/11 season.

Alonso has confessed he has always loved Chelsea. He revealed he used to come to Stamford Bridge as a kid to watch games and also asked Sturridge for tickets to watch Chelsea games.

“I have always enjoyed my time here (in England). The Premier League is the best league in the world and it’s nice to play football here,” Alonso told talkSPORT.

“It was always an idea I had in mind and when they told me about Chelsea (being interested) – it’s a team I’ve always loved – I used to come to watch when I was a kid.

“When I was playing for Bolton, I used to ask (Daniel) Sturridge for tickets to come to the game and obviously I didn’t hesitate about coming here.”
