Chelsea left wing-back Marcos Alonso has revealed that Frenchman N’Golo Kante is trying to learn the Spanish language.

The duo, both 26, were key for the Blues last season as Chelsea secured Premier League glory and reached the FA Cup final.

Alonso opened up to the official Chelsea website on his relationship with Kante and Cesar Azpilicueta.

Asked what they talk about, Alonso said: “Between them they speak about FIFA because they like to play it a lot, but not me so with Azpi I speak about Spanish teams and football mostly, and he also asks me about my girlfriend because I have a new girlfriend and he is curious.

“And with N’Golo, he is trying to speak Spanish and I am trying to speak French so we are both teachers of each other.”

He also added: “I was very impressed when I heard N’Golo speaking Spanish, he used to learn it at school and he can speak it.”
