Marcos Alonso was interviewed on the official Chelsea Instagram page today, and the left wing back came up with some interesting answers.
He was of course asked about his favourite goal – and named, as you might expect, the free kick against Tottenham at Wembley.
But when asked about the toughest opponent he had faced, he had a different take. He chose one from his time at Bolton, in his first spell in the Premier League – but the man he was up against was a player we Chelsea fans hold even closer to our hearts.
“I remember having a bad game playing against Damien Duff at Fulham,” Alonso said in quoted picked up the Metro.
He certainly did, getting torn apart by the tricky winger for 90 minutes while still in his very early days as a pro. Bolton were relegated that year, and while Alonso (and a little known teammate by the name of Gary Cahill) got more chances at the top level to prove they were up to it, some of their teammates didn’t.
