Sarri has special message for Alonso after five-year Chelsea deal gets signed!
Maurizio Sarri has told Marcos Alonso he has the potential to become the best left-back in world football after the Spaniard signed a new deal with Chelsea.
There were many critics who suggested Alonso was simply not good enough for the Premier League before former boss Antonio Conte brought him back to England, but week after week and month after month the Spaniard put in impressive performances and gradually proved many of his doubters wrong.
He is solid in defence and a real threat going forward, he has developed into a real superstar at Chelsea and has become an integral part of attacking style Sarri likes to employ at Stamford Bridge, so it was a no brainer that he would be offered a new five-year deal to sign.
And after seeing Alonso pen the deal, Sarri says he can still improve and believes he can emerge as the best left-back in Europe, stating:. ‘I’m very happy for him. He can be the best left-back in Europe. 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.’
Can Alonso become the best left-back in world football? Here is what we think.
The best players get to the very top of the game by hard-work, dedication and an ability constantly improve the weakest aspects of their game, and that is what Alonso has been doing since he arrived at Stamford Bridge a few seasons ago.
Yes he has a few issues to resolve, but right now there are not many out there that you would put ahead of the Spaniard and there are certainly none in the Premier League better. So if he is able to continue developing and improving then yes he will be the worlds best, especially since he isn’t far off from that title already.
