Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has turned Chelsea around after a poor showing in the Premier League last season.
While Conte has changed the tactics and philosophy at Chelsea, he also ensured there is a good atmosphere in the dressing room.
“We have been going out for dinners once a month all together as a group, just enjoying each other’s company off the pitch as well,” Alonso told Chelsea official website.
“It’s been a great help and the atmosphere within the squad is amazing. You can see that when we’re on the pitch.
“It’s organised by the manager and the captain and it’s good fun for everyone.”
