Marcos Alonso Leaves Chelsea By Mutual Consent

Marcos Alonso has left Chelsea by mutual consent, ending a six-year association with

the ‎London club.

The Spaniard played an integral part in Chelsea’s most recent Premier League

triumph, back in 2016/17, shining at left wing-back in his first season at Stamford

Bridge.

Although his previous experience of English football had been with Bolton and

Sunderland, mostly battling relegation, he needed no time adapting to life at a club

challenging for honors in different competitions.

After that brilliant title win, the next five years brought success in the FA Cup, Europa

League, Champions League, Super Cup, and Club World Cup. Alonso could be counted

upon to regularly pop up with vital goals or assists.

A fan’s favorite because of his love for the big occasion, Alonso netted iconic late

winners against both Tottenham and Arsenal. In all, he scored six of his 29 Chelsea

goals against our north London rivals, with a further two strikes at Old Trafford, as

well as a stoppage-time winner away to Manchester City.

Deployed at left wing-back for 60 percent of his 212 appearances, and at left-back for

the rest, Alonso was confident in possession, strong in the air, and an excellent set-

piece taker. His performances for Chelsea earned him a call-up to the Spain squad for

the first time in March 2018, following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps.
