??Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri believes Marcos Alonso can become the world’s best left back should the Spaniard improve on his defensive work, ?according to ESPN.
The 27-year-old defender, who already has one goal and two assists in Chelsea’s opening four Premier League matches, impressed in the Blues’ 2-0 win over ?Bournemouth and was the closest out of anyone to breaking the deadlock in the first half when his right-footed shot struck the post.
He was also involved in the build-up for both Pedro and Eden Hazard’s goals as Chelsea finally got the better of the stubborn Cherries defence.
Alonso’s impressive start to the season has seen him named in Luis Enrique’s Spain squad for the matches against England and Croatia later this month.
Sarri on Marcos Alonso threat: “I think Alonso in this position at left back, he is the best in Europe. He has top qualities but he can improve in the defensive phase. He could become the best left back in the world” #CFC #CHEBOU
