Chelsea Spanish full-back Marcos Alonso recently spoke to the team’s official website as he lifted the lid on some of his teammates at West London club.
The Spaniard was quizzed on a number of different subjects, related to topics both on and off the pitch, and was asked which Chelsea player had been standing out the most in recent training sessions under new boss Maurizio Sarri.
Spain international defender has appeared to show little hesitation in his response and proceeded to lavish praise on his compatriot Pedro Rodriguez.
“I’d say Pedro, he’s been on fire since pre-season. He was scoring in pre-season and he’s started really well so I hope he continues to score goals and helps us reach our target, which is to win everything.”
The experienced forward has enjoyed a strong start to the 2018/19 season and has established himself as an important role in Sarri’s plans, with the Blues continuing to take the Premier League by storm winning five Premier League games.
Spaniard, too, has been in stunning form in the early periods of the new season. Sarri’s decision to revert to a four-back formation does not appear to have deterred the Spaniard, who has been one of the prolific players in the Premier League.
The Blues supporters will be hoping that the team’s Spanish contingent can continue to shine, with their team sitting pretty at the top of the league table..
