Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso has signed a new five-year contract at the club that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until June 2023.
Alonso has been very instrumental to Chelsea’s success so far this season, and Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has hailed Alonso as one of the best left-back in the Europe.
“I’m very happy for him. He can be the best left-back in Europe,” Sarri said when asked about Alonso’s new deal.
“He needs to improve in the defensive phase as he played in a five more, now he plays in a four.
“If he can improve he can be the best left-back in Europe.”
Responding to Sarri’s comments, Alonso appreciated what Sarri had to say, as he said: “That’s nice words from him. It has been one of my dreams to become the best in my position.
“My intention has always been to stay here. I am very happy to sign. I am so happy to stay here longer and to keep playing for one of the best teams in the world.”
“It’s been a very good two seasons and I am looking forward to more.”
